The EDLUT Nervous System Simulator

Researchers at the University of Granada have developed a simulator which is able to reproduce any part of the human nervous system. The EDLUT system (for "Event Driven LookUp Table") will aid in study of the nervous system in relation to new pathologies and diseases and to test new medicines. The simulator will also be used to improve the design of robots and machines which attempt to replicate the nervous system. The simulator is an advance over previous systems such as NEURON and GENESIS in its ability to simulate several hundred thousand neurons at once. The EDLUT software is open source and can be downloaded from the Internet.
