Objective

To describe and illustrate the minimum steps to run a minimal simulation using a preconfigured network configuration.

Procedure

  1. Navigate to the Network Configurations Dashboard and view the public network configurations. Choose one of the publicly shared network configurations and click "Create Copy Of", this will open a copy of this model and open it.
  2. Save this network configuration into your account by pressing Save As. You will now be able to use this configuration in your own simulations and future steps.
  3. Navigate back to the Platform Dashboard by clicking the Dashboard Button. Now open the Result Recording Profiles Dashboard from the Experiment Configuration menu.
  4. Select Create New Recording Profile. This will open a recording profile creator GUI. Select your Network that you copied earlier and then select record all voltages and click Done.
  5. The recording profile creator GUI will now display a pre-configured recording profile with all voltages in the network selected for recording. Click Save As to save this recording profile
  6. Navigate back to the Platform Dashboard by clicking the Dashboard Button. Now open the Behaviour Experiment from the Experiment Configuration menu.
  7. Open one of the publicly shared behavioural experiments and click on clone when the 3D visualization window is loaded
  8. Change the description field with a meaningful name and click on save experiment
  9. Navigate back to the Platform Dashboard by clicking the Dashboard Button. Now open the Wizard for Booking from the Experiment Configuration menu.
  10. Currently the system is unable to accept bookings. Meanwhile jump to step 11. (remove once hw assembly is finished).
  11. (Once hw assembly is ready) On the Create a new experiment section of Wizard of Booking, fill the description field, select the defined Behaviour Experiment on the left and the defined worm_conf on the right side, and click on Add Reservation.. Reservation state can be followed in Wizard for booking
  12. Once results are ready, we can check (alternatively):
    • In the "Last obtained results" section on the Dashboard or for shared results in "Last shared with me" or "Recently made public".
    • Within one of the results menu options, checking for locomotion / neural / integrated results visualization (option on the provided video)
  13. Within the Integrated Results Visualization selection click on a results Joint View button
  14. Once the joint viewer is loaded, click on play / pause and on the show events / show traces to visualize the results
