This site provides an annotated index for computational neurobiology, focusing on compartmental modeling and realistic simulations of biological neural systems. One can locate modeling software and that for computational morphology, phase plane and spike train analysis, and web based neuroinformatics. There are links to major laboratories, researchers, conferences, education and funding for theoretical neurobiology.
