You might want to take a look in Ronald J. MacGregor's books. I think his
stuff was written in Fortran. The books are :
	- Neural and Brain Modeling, Academic Press 1987
	- Theoritical Mechanics of Biological Neural Networks, Academic
	  Press 1993

You might also want to take a look at Genesis (developped by Bower, Wilson
et al, at Caltech) even if the simulator is written in C.

Have fun,
