A general GPU-based framework for the fast simulation of “cortically-organized” networks, defined as networks consisting of n-dimensional layers of similar cells.
This is a fairly broad class, including more than just “HMAX” models. We have developed specialized CNS packages for HMAX feature hierarchy models (hmax), convolutional networks (cnpkg), and networks of Hodgkin-Huxley spiking cells (hhpkg).
While CNS is designed for use with a GPU, it can run (much more slowly) without one. It does, however, require MATLAB.
