1. NEURON (http://www.neuron.yale.edu/): Free, downloadable software for developing and exercising models of neurons and networks of neurons. The authors state that it is especially useful for problems where the cable properties of cells are important and where cell membrane properties are complex.
2. GENESIS (http://www.genesis-sim.org/GENESIS/): The GEneral NEural SImulation System is a general purpose simulation platform that supports simulations of complex models of single neurons through simulations of larger networks of more abstract neuronal components. The software is free and downloadable from the website.
