Full Description

Biological neuronal network simulations with Python

What it gives you

  • shell environment with NEST 2.12, NEURON 7.4, and PyNN 0.9 installed.
  • The Python 2.7 version provides Brian 1.4, the Python 3.4 version provides Brian 2 (release candidate)
  • IPython, scipy, matplotlib and OpenMPI are also installed.
  • use directly or as a base for your own project-specific Docker images.

Basic use

The following command starts a container with the bash shell, running as user docker,
in a Python virtual environment named "neurosci".

docker run -i -t neuralensemble/simulation:py2 /bin/bash

after which you can run simulations with Python and MPI.

Note that this image does not provide an X11 graphical environment, so GUI tools will not work;
use the neuralensemble/simulationx:py2 image if you need X11.
