NCS-NeuroML Translator

Computational Neuroscience has become an emerging field studying complex dynamics of the brain. Several software systems have been developed to simulate these processes with a wide range of biological detail, from the interaction between thousands of neurons, down to the dynamics between two individual cells. However, each uses a specific programming language or input syntax, which makes it difficult for non-programmers to use. Since each language is different, it also becomes a non-trivial task to compare results and exchange data among researchers, which slows down the discovery of important findings. We propose to create a tool that translates input files between two different languages, the NCS input language and the NeuroML format. It provides a user-friendly interface, which can be used to both create and edit simulations without using a text editor or a complex programming language. This novel tool will not only allow non-programmers to model brain processes and functions, but will also give NCS users an opportunity to compare their modeling results with other well- known simulators.
