Abstract
Large-scale neural simulations encompass challenges in simulator design, data handling and understanding of simulation output. As the computational power of supercomputers and the size of network models increase, these challenges become even more pronounced. Here we introduce the experimental scalable neural simulator Nexa, for parallel simulation of large-scale neural network models at a high level of biological abstraction and for exploration of the simulation methods involved. It includes firing-rate models and capabilities to build networks using machine learning inspired methods for e.g. self-organization of network architecture and for structural plasticit...
