The GENESIS simulator (the GEneral NEural SImulation System) is used for creating biologically realistic computer models of neural systems
Applications of GENESIS range from subcellular components and biochemical reactions to complex models of single neurons, simulations of large networks, and systems-level models. An extension of GENESIS (PGENESIS) is available for use on parallel computers, clusters of workstations, and PCs with multicore processors. Although the software can also model more abstract networks, other simulators are more suitable for backpropagation and similar connectionist modeling.
