PyMUS: A Python based Motor Unit Simulator (Kim & Kim 2018)

PyMUS is a simulation software that allows for integrative investigations on the input-output processing of the motor unit system in a hierarchical manner from a single channel to the entire system behavior. Using PyMUS, a single motoneuron, muscle unit and motor unit can be separately simulated under a wide range of experimental input protocols.
