SpikeFun v0.57 has just been released... and with this release it is the right time to describe several important changes that had happened since the last post. And there are, indeed, many! So, what are they?
Axon routing through white matter by using DSI (Diffusion Tensor Imaging) data - DSI Studio Engine is used for dynamic build-up of DSI tracts (you can select how many tracts to use for a simulation)
New and significantly improved algorithm for generation of the cortical network (3-4 times faster)
Fixed over-provisioning of neural compartments in cases where there are not enough synaptic candidates to meet the cell requirements
Added capability to inject brief depolarizing current into the selected neuron ('I' key)
Added capability to adjust the brainstem modulation level of the thalamus as well as artificially-generated sensory stimulus intensity
