A number of programming languages are ubiquitous in modern neuroscience and are key to the competence, freedom, and creativity necessary in neuroscience research. This course offers lectures on the fundamentals of data science and specific neuroinformatic tools used in the investigation of brain data. Attendees of this course will be learn about the programming languages Python, R, and MATLAB, as well as their associated packages and software environments.
This lesson provides a brief overview of the Python programming language, with an emphasis on tools relevant to data scientists.
This lesson provides a comprehensive introduction to the command line and 50 popular Linux commands. This is a long introduction (nearly 5 hours), but well worth it if you are going to spend a good part of your career working from a terminal, which is likely if you are interested in flexibility, power, and reproducibility in neuroscience research.
