MOOSE 3.0.1 "Gulab Jamun" released
Welcome to Moose
MOOSE is the Multiscale Object-Oriented Simulation Environment.
It is designed to simulate neural systems ranging from subcellular components and biochemical reactions to complex models of single neurons, circuits, and large networks. MOOSE can operate at many levels of detail, from stochastic chemical computations, to multicompartment single-neuron models, to spiking neuron network models.

MOOSE is a simulation environment, not just a numerical engine. It provides the essentials by way of object-oriented representations of model concepts and fast numerical solvers, but its scope is much broader.
It has a scripting interface with Python, graphical displays with Matplotlib, PyQt, and OpenGL, and support for many model formats. These include SBML, NeuroML, GENESIS kkit and cell.p formats, HDF5 and NSDF for data writing.

About MOOSE version 3.0.1, Gulab Jamun

The Gulab Jamun release is the second of a new series of MOOSE releases.

Gulab Jamun is a classic North Indian sweet consisting of deep brown spheres involving milk solids, cardamom and other spices, floating in a rich syrup. Try one!

MOOSE 3.0.1 is an evolutionary increment over 3.0.0:

  •    - Multiscale modeling updates including better cross-compartment reactions, including stochasticity.
  •    - General robustness and error reporting improvements for solvers.
  •    - HSolver updates to handle NMDA and derived classes of channels with Ca currents.
  •    - Better release packaging
