AB - Brian 2A clock-driven simulator for spiking neural networksBrian is a free, open source simulator for spiking neural networks. It is written in the Python programming language and is available on almost all platforms. We believe that a simulator should not only save the time of processors, but also the time of scientists. Brian is therefore designed to be easy to learn and use, highly flexible and easily extensible.Documentation for Brian2 can be found at http://brian2.readthedocs.orgThe code is developed here: is released under the terms of the CeCILL 2.1 license.If you use Brian for your published research, we suggest that you cite one of our introductory articles:Goodman DFM and Brette R (2009).
