The following activities were written for the Neural Information Processing Systems (NIPS 2009) conference for use at our demo table for Nengo. The software for use in this tutorial can be downloaded at http://www.nengo.ca. This demo is available online at http://ctnsrv.uwaterloo.ca/cnrglab/node/175.

The videos we were running at the demo booth are posted here: http://www.yout ube.com/watch?v=q4jxI26gUtA.

Nengo (www.nengo.ca) is a graphical neural simulation environment. The following are available at the booth, and on the web.
