Thanks a lot for sharing this!! Dear Etienne I'm glad you like it. BTW, if you still have some MATLAB legacy code that you would like to use in Python, then matlab_wrapper [1] could be helpful. It allows you to call MATLAB functions directly from Python environment (the MATLAB process is started in the background), e.g.: matlab.workspace.sin([0.1, 0.2, 0.3]) Cheers Marek [1] > On 19/08/2014 14:50, Marek Rudnicki wrote: >> Hi all, >> >> we would like to announce *cochlea* -- a collection of inner ear >> models in Python.
