Abstract:

A preliminary version of the neural simulation program MacNeuron is implemented on the Macintosh IIci with more extensive user-interface added to the previous version. A preliminary user manual and the software will be sent to the scientific program officer, which describes the specific run-time environment of the program. The current version of MacNeuron incorporated much of the friendly user-interface for building a network of neuron. The building process can be done by a the menu-driven window user-interface environment and b the batch-mode script file for describing the run-time environment and simulation parameters. An interactive built-in text editor is also included in the simulation program for entering the script-file for describing the run-time environment. The program can be run with interactive user-control via iconic interface or under hands-off background mode via text-based script interface. Currently, the script file is executed via the macro command, where a group of user-specified commands can be executed under a menu-command created by the users script file.
