A novel neuron data model with a neuron domain specific query language is proposed in this paper. It is inspired by the project NeuronBank [14]. This data model is composed of five components: neuron data structure, constraints, operations, domain-specific query language (NeuroQL), and controlled vocabulary. It can capture and enforce more domain semantics than traditional data models, such as attributes of attributes and source information. It also enables users to model their special
