Rat Somatosensory Cortex

Together with the publication of a digital reconstruction of the microcircuitry of juvenile Rat somatosensory cortex (Markram et al, 2015, Cell), the Blue Brain made 1035 biophysically detailed electrical models of single neurons available for download. Every model also contains the synapses at the exact locations as they are used in the microcircuit model. Downloadable packages are available on the Blue Brain NMC Portal website and can be run locally on a personal computer.
