NEST: The Neural Simulation Tool

NEST is a high performance simulator for large networks of spiking neurons, developed with a focus on reproducibility and correctness. It is optimised for single or few compartment neuron models and incorporates a wide range of synaptic plasticity models. NEST is used to investigate many aspects of function and dysfunction in neural systems.

Arbor is a performance portable library for the simulation of large networks of multi-compartment, morphologically detailed neurons on emerging HPC architectures. It is developed under an open development model by the Jülich Supercomputing Centre’s SimLab Neuroscience and the Swiss National Supercomputing Center (CSCS), in close collaboration with the neuroscientific community.
