Tools, Etc.

This software uses various Apache tools, and the following libraries: Beanshell, Colt, GlazedLists, JAMA , JFreeChart, JGAPPiccolo, OjAlgo, RText and RSyntaxTextArea, SSJ, SwingLabs, and XStream. Some of the data (in particular the .arff files) were drawn from the Weka project, and from the website of Gary Weiss. Some of the tools at Ostermiller.org are also used. Bits of open source code found online or in books are noted in code documentation.

The Simbrain.net website is based on the skeleton framework and uses an unslider.

Simbrain has been developed using an open source YourKit license. Yourkit supports open source projects with its full-featured Java Profiler. YourKit, LLC is the creator of YourKit Java Profiler.

Funding and Grant Support

The development of Simbrain has been supported by several grants, including an early grant (around 2005) from the Hewlett Foundation, and several UC Merced faculty research grants. Between 2016 and 2019 some work on Simbrain was supported by a grant from the National Science Foundation (An Analysis of the Consequences of Cortical Structure on Computation Award Number:1513779).
