C elegans muscle cell model in NeuroML 2

This introduction is currently only for the NeuroML 2 implementation of the C elegans muscle cell model of [Boyle & Cohen, 2008](http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0303264708001408).

For more details see the README/wiki on the GitHub site: https://github.com/openworm/muscle\_model

Cloning the repository

Get a local copy of the repository with:

`git clone https://github.com/openworm/muscle_model.git`


`git clone git`github.com:openworm/muscle\_model.git@

if you have SSH authentication set up (see [here](https://help.github.com/articles/set-up-git)).

Run the NeuroML 2 example

Install the Java parser simulator for NeuroML 2 (currently called libNeuroML, see [here](http://www.neuroml.org/neuroml2.php#libNeuroML)). Remember to set the **NML2\_HOME** environment variable.

Go in to the directory with the NeuroML 2 version of the model:

`cd muscle_model/NeuroML2`

Run the example cell (trying to reproduce Figure 2A in [Boyle & Cohen, 2008](http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0303264708001408)) with:

`nml2 Figure2A.xml`


Run the example cell (trying to reproduce Figure 2B in [Boyle & Cohen, 2008](http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0303264708001408)) with:

`nml2 Figure2B.xml`


There is also a simplified muscle cell model which Mike Vella is building from scratch with Alexander Dibert in the Pyramidal framework, here is a sample trace:
