The Complete Neuron

This is the current project and is unfinished.


A typical neuron with all its component parts (Dendrites, Soma and Axon) has a membrane surface area of about 250,000 ┬Ám2. The surface area of the 86 billion neurons that make up the human brain is therefor about 25,000 m2 or roughly the size of four football fields.
This expanse of membrane constitutes the fabric of our minds.

This simulator allows you to construct an operating Neuron by dragging dropping the components onto the working area. Wire up the components by left clicking near ether end of the component. Its name will appear in the connection list to the left.

The components labeled 'Step' provide a step input current to the component they are wired to and the 'Scopes' allow you to view the voltage potential.

 

This version seems stable and can be downloaded and installed without problem

Download (Windows only) Still very much in work
