GEneral NEural SImulation System

GENESIS (short for GEneral NEural SImulation System) is a general purpose simulation platform that was developed to support the simulation of neural systems ranging from subcellular components and biochemical reactions to complex models of single neurons, simulations of large networks, and systems-level models. It was developed as a research tool to provide a standard and flexible means for constructing structurally realistic models of biological neural systems.
