David Sterratt's hoc library for NEURON

This is a library of hoc functions that I've found useful in my work with NEURON in particular Sterratt et al (2012). I haven't used this code actively for some time and it is largely undocumented. Please let me know if you would like any explanation.

PointProcessDistributor

Following this thread on the NEURON discussion forum, the PointProcessDistributor.hoc file can be used to distribute point processes on a morphology in NEURON. To run it, try

nrngui tests/test_PointProcessDistributor.hoc

TreePlots

The TreePlot code can be useful for plotting quantities over dendritic trees. Try:

nrngui tests/test_TreePlot.hoc
