This is the guide for the model view in NEST Desktop.
You can import models from various sources, e.g. a file you uploaded from you computer, a file from a GitHub repository or from a specified URL.
Model files should be formatted in JSON.
When you select Import from GitHub, choose an element type and then a JSON file of your desired model group which includes all functions of synapse currents.
The table shows a list of models from which you can select which ones you want to import.
It shows the official user documentation of a selected model which also can be found on http://nest-simulator.readthedocs.io/en/latest/models/.
You can explore the activity dynamics of neuron models only.
First, choose a simulation to see the neuronal response to a specific stimulus device.
Then start the simulation by clicking on the SIMULATE button.
You can use the code editor to see changes in activity.
It is important to disable the Insite pipeline for the simulation (in the settings).
The model editor allows you to make changes in parameter specifications, e.g. default value, unit, label or inputs.
