Neurite: electrophysiological-mechanical coupling simulation framework (Garcia-Grajales et al 2015)

Neurite simulates the electrical signal propagation in myelinated and unmyelinated axons, and in dendritic trees under mechanical loading. Two different solvers are available (explicit and implicit) with sequential (CPU) and parallel (GPUs) versions

Model Type: Axon; Dendrite

Cell Type(s): Myelinated neuron

Currents: I Sodium; I Potassium

Model Concept(s): Action Potential Initiation; Axonal Action Potentials; Action Potentials

Simulation Environment: C or C++ program

Implementer(s): Garcia-Grajales, Julian Andres
