I want to use apalike bibliography style (downloaded from: http://web.reed.edu/cis/help/LaTeX/bibtexstyles.html). But I somehow don't get the style output as it is supposed to be.

I have attached a minimal working example.

The files: https://docs.google.com/folder/d/0B6yei5eTKtEscEgwT08xWE96cGc/edit

I would like to use neuron bib style or any bib style that serves the purpose of applying the format to my citations in the manner [Author or book name,(year)].

Welcome to TeX.SE! I've checked out the files provided in the link you posted. Unfortunately, the tex file you've posted can't be compiled since you didn't post the file myrefs.bib. Your posting is a bit confusing, I'm afraid: you start by stating that you want to use the apalike bibliography style, and later claim that you want o use the neuron bibliography style. Which style do you want to use? Incidentally, when switching from one bibliography style to another, it's a good idea to delete all aux files and recompile the doc from scratch: latex, bibtex, and latex twice more. – Mico Dec 27 '12 at 4:38
I am sorry ... Please revisit the same link , I have added "myrefs.bib" now. I would like to use either apalike or neuron. It doesnt matter. I am worried why I am not able to see any changes in the bib style in my output document. – vulkkan Dec 27 '12 at 18:02
Thanks for uploading the .bib file. I experience no problems compiling your file using either the apalike or the neuron bibliography style. (You do delete the .aux files when switching from one style file to another and run latex-bibtex-latex-latex to fully update all references, right?) Separately, could you be a bit more specific about what you mean by "I somehow don't get the style output as it is supposed to be"? Without that information, it's not exactly easy to provide advice. – Mico Dec 27 '12 at 19:56
I can explain what is the problem I am facing: Please check postimage.org/image/irnnjs0ad and postimage.org/image/zf8n3zyvh ... I changed my bibstyle in both and still I get the same style on PDF. And yes I did clear all AUX files and recompiled it. – vulkkan Dec 27 '12 at 20:19
In both the pictures you can notice that the bibstyle for reference " McNally et al (1999)" is same. There is absolutely no difference in its style. – vulkkan Dec 27 '12 at 20:23
