NEST: The Neural Simulation Tool
One of the central simulators in Computational Neuroscience, NEST, is developed for 20 years according to the needs of neuroscience. Since 2012, high performance computing and visualization scientists at RWTH Aachen University are collaborating with experts at Forschungszentrum Jülich. The main goal of the collaboration is the efficient visualization of brain-scale neuronal networks and the improvement of the performance on supercomputers. NEST's relationship to national and international research projects was recently summarized in an information booklet.
