Here, I'm writing part of the C++ code underling xolotl
Your browser does not support the video tag.
  • xolotl: A fast (written in C++), flexible (fully object oriented) and immediate (live manipulation in MATLAB) neuron and network simulator.

  • puppeteer: A pure MATLAB class to control and manipulate models, simulations, functions...anything

  • kontroller: A easy-to-use wrapper for MATLAB's DAQ toolbox

  • crabsort: Interactive, automated extracellular spike sorting with machine learning

All code here is free software. You should look at my github page for other projects I'm working on.

<script> var ul = document.querySelector('#test'); var N_remove = 5; // first shuffle the list for (var i = ul.children.length; i >= 0; i--) { ul.appendChild(ul.children[Math.random() * i | 0]); } // keep some things pinned to the top var keep_items = document.querySelectorAll('.keep'); try { for (var i = 0; i <= keep_items.length; i++) { ul.insertBefore(keep_items[i], ul.firstChild); } } catch {} // now remove the last N_remove items. since the list is // randomized, this is equivalent to randomly removing some items for (var i = 0; i < N_remove; i++) { ul.removeChild(ul.lastChild); } </script>
