Designed especially for neurobiologists, FluoRender is an interactive tool for multi-channel fluorescence microscopy data visualization and analysis.
Deep brain stimulation
BrainStimulator is a set of networks that are used in SCIRun to perform simulations of brain stimulation such as transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) and magnetic transcranial stimulation (TMS).
Developing software tools for science has always been a central vision of the SCI Institute.

This note is concerned with the provision of an interpolant for o.d.e. initial value codes based upon backward differentiation formulae (b.d.f.) in which both the solution and its first time derivative are continuous over the range of integration--a C1 interpolant. The construction and implementation of the interpolant is described and the continuity achieved in practice is illustrated by two examples.
