SWIMMY: Free Software for Teaching Neurophysiology of Neuronal Circuits
Free and complete software providing experience with neurophysiological phenomena and mechanisms of motor pattern generation in virtual neural circuits. SWIMMY is an instructional tool for teaching neurophysiology that requires only a computer but yet is still inquiry based. SWIMMY offers students the opportunity to approach a conceptually challenging task of scientific discovery and to get practical experience with the basics of neurophysiology--without the impediments of in vivo or in vitro neurophysiology experiments. SWIMMY is available for free, along with student and instructor tutorials.
