Neuron models in Nengo


#1

How to incorporate neuron models like Hodgkin Huxley, Hindmarsh Rose neuron etc in Nengo besides the given models in Nengo


#2

BioSpaun is an extension of the Spaun model that includes detailed conductance-based,
compartmental models of neurons [1].

To do that, the authors developped an interface between Python and NEURON: nengo-detailed-neurons [2]. With the interface, you can certainly use Hodgkin-Huxley in Nengo.

Or there’s an example here on how to write your own neuron model https://www.nengo.ai/nengo/examples/usage/rectified_linear.html, which may be easier than interfacing with NEURON (depending on how complicated a neuron model you want to implement).
