What Elephant can do for you

The Electrophysiology Analysis Toolkit (Elephant) is a Python library that provides a modular framework for the analysis of experimental and simulated neuronal activity data, such as spike trains, local field potentials, and intracellular data. Elephant builds on the Neo data model to facilitate usability, to enable interoperability, and to support data from dozens of file formats and network simulation tools. Its analysis functions are continuously validated against reference implementations and reports in the literature. Visualizations of analysis results are made available via the Viziphant companion library. Elephant aims to act as a platform for sharing analysis methods across the field.
