Lobster STG pyloric network model with calcium sensor (Gunay & Prinz 2010) (Prinz et al. 2004)

This pyloric network model simulator is a C/C++ program that saves 384 different calcium sensor values that are candidates for activity sensors (Gunay and Prinz, 2010). The simulator was used to scan all of the 20 million pyloric network models that were previously collected in a database (Prinz et al, 2004).
