This test case ensures that the Python bindings of NEURON simulator function correctly on install.


  1. Run a current Fedora release: even a virtual machine is OK.
  2. Install nest: sudo dnf install python3-neuron python3-ipython.
  3. If testing an update, please ensure that the build in the update is being installed: sudo dnf --enablerepo=updates-testing install python3-neuron python3-ipython.

How to test

  1. In a terminal, run the ipython3 interpreter: ipython3
  2. Try to import neuron: import neuron
  3. Go through the steps listed in the NEURON documentation:

Expected Results

  1. NEURON should be import correctly in Python.
  2. You should be able to run the example simulation and see the graph provided in the documentation.
