NEURON-UI is an experimental prototype for a new user interface for NEURON based on Geppetto.
Full Description


This repository hosts an experimental prototype for a new user interface for NEURON based on web technologies.

To install:

pip install neuron_ui
jupyter nbextension enable --py jupyter_geppetto

For a development installation:

git clone
python utilities/

This scripts clones all needed repos and install the extension and NEURON in development mode. Any change to python and js code will be automatically deploy. However, for js code we will have to execute (in this path NEURON-UI/org.geppetto.frontend.jupyter/src/jupyter_geppetto/geppetto/src/main/webapp):

npm run build-dev-noTest

A better option is to run:

npm run build-dev-noTest:watch

so that any change in the js code will trigger a rebuild.

To run:


To update from sources:


The available functionality is currently limited to the RunControl panel, a basic cell builder, a simplified point process manager that lets you inject a current clamp and space plot functionality.

This prototype is being developed in collaboration with the Neurosim Lab and the Sense Lab.

The UI connects to nrnpython through a Geppetto extension for Jupyter Notebook.
