The latest release of neuroConstruct (1.2.2) is available from
This release has a few minor optimisation and bug fixes. Some other changes:
- The main examples have been restructured into 2 new directories: nCexamples for non anatomical examples used to illustrate core nC functionality;
nCmodels for more biologically realistic examples, mainly based on published models.
Added a Pyramidal cell model from Kole et al 2008/Rothman et al 2009.
- Added a preliminary mapping to PSICS. To use the PSICS functionality you will need to get a copy of the jar file from the PSICS website,
save it locally and set the location in Settings -> General Properties and Project Defaults. The included example nCexamples\Ex7_PSICSDemo
illustrates current functionality which is quite limited at the moment.
- Added option for Morphology based Network connections: "Direct recurrent connections not allowed" for connections within a cell group, so that
if cell A is connected to B, B won't form a connection back to A. Useful for electrical synapses (a ChannelML template for gap junctions is included #
in this release too). Added option to have weights of syn connections function of radial distance between source & target.
