comment What (open) software there are for simulating behaviour of human (cortical) neurons?
Sure, you can regularize your solution, and put extra constraints to get a better solution, but do you really recover the behavior of the cortical neurons with a thousand dipole model? Are dipoles the right representation for neural computation? We don't know the answer, but I'm betting they are insufficient.

Perhaps I misread OP's question. Upon re-reading, OP only says "simulating the behaviour of human cortical neurons", I guess it could be larger scale model. I'm editing my answer.

Thanks for the feedback! Yes, of course you can do source localization, assuming there are a few dipoles (or under other simplifying assumptions), but it's difficult to connect to the neuronal level simulation as the OP wants to do. (Sorry. I don't know how to turn your answer into a comment.)

comment What is an auditory upward sweep?
It just means a sound that starts at a low frequency and goes up to higher frequency like a whistle sound. Perhaps someone can give you an example sound file and/or a spectrogram representation of it.

comment What actually are thoughts?
But what are thoughts? :) I don't think the question is well defined yet. If you indicate a specific "thought" or "thought process" in mind, you may get a better answer.

comment Why aren't circadian rhythms exactly 24 hours long?
Perhaps because the optimal cycle of life is not 24 hours due to seasonal changes and migrations? It is quite difficult to make biological oscillators with very long periods precise, and it doesn't need to be, because one can entrain an oscillator with external stimuli. And as you mentioned in the comments, variations can be helpful in many ways.
