# Circadian Rhythms

A Python simulation of circadian dynamics in the suprachiasmatic nuclei of the mouse hypothalamus.

Requires NumPy, SciPy, Matplotlib, and other packages listed in circadian/req1.txt and circadian.req2.txt

The subdirectory circadian (containing __init__.py) should be in your \$PYTHONPATH environment variable to allow you to import this. Or, you can open a python prompt in the directory above that (the same as this file) and you should be able to issue a import circadian. Or, you should be able to do python scripts/runMe.py in this directory to see some results, or python scripts/runTests.py or just make tests to run the tests. Some of the tests additionally require SymPy.
