The NEURON simulator provides support for simulating neurons and networks of neurons across multiple spatial and temporal scales. Historically, much of the focus was on neuronal electrophysiology; in 2012, we introduced a reaction-diffusion specification to facilitate studies of how the cell biology of neurons interacts with the electrophysiology. We describe recent improvements in NEURON's support for this field of research.
