Data Management, Repositories, & Search Engines

The importance of Research Data Management in the conduct of open and reproducible science is better understood and technically supported than ever, and many of the underlying principles apply as much to everyday activities of a single researcher as to large-scale, multi-center open data sharing.

 

Reproducible Science (Including Git, Docker, and Binder)

Krembil Centre for Neuroinformatics

This course consists of two workshops which focus on the need for reproducibility in science, particularly under the umbrella roadmap of FAIR scienctific principles. The tutorials also provide an introduction to some of the most commonly used open-source scientific tools, including Git, GitHub, Google Colab, Binder, Docker, and the programming languages Python and R.

Deep Learning: Associative Memories

NYU Center for Data Science

This module covers the concept of associative memories in deep learning. It is a part of the Deep Learning Course at NYU's Center for Data Science. Prerequisites for this module include: Introduction to Deep Learning (module 1 of the course), Parameter Sharing (module 2 of the course), 

 

Notebooks

Notebook systems are proving invaluable to skill acquisition, research documentation, publication, and reproducibility.  This series of presentations introduces the most popular platform for computational notebooks, Project Jupyter, as well as other resources like Binder and NeuroLibre. 

 

Module 5: Calcium Imaging

Mike X. Cohen

In this course, you will learn about working with calcium-imaging data, including image processing to remove background "blur", identifying cells based on threshold spatial contiguity, time-series filtering, and principal component analysis (PCA). The MATLAB code shows data animations, capabilities of the image processing toolbox, and PCA.

 

The Virtual Brain Node #6 Workshop

The Virtual Brain

Get up to speed about the fundamental principles of full brain network modeling using the open-source neuroinformatics platform The Virtual Brain (TVB). This simulation environment enables the biologically realistic modeling of whole-brain network dynamics across different brain scales, using personalized structural connectome-based approach.

 

Cajal Course in Computational Neuroscience

CAJAL Advanced Neuroscience Training

The CAJAL Course in Computational Neuroscience teaches the central ideas, methods, and practice of modern computational neuroscience through a combination of lectures and hands-on project work. This course is designed for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows from a variety of disciplines, including neuroscience, physics, electrical engineering, computer science, mathematics, and psychology. 

 

TVB Made Easy

The Virtual Brain

In this short series of lectures, participants will take a look at articles using TVB in a clinical context. Specifically, participants will see how TVB can help to predict recovery after stroke and how individual epileptic seizures are simulated. The course lecturers will briefly describe the methods used and results achieved in the articles.

 

Introductory Concepts

Krembil Centre for Neuroinformatics

This couse is the opening module for the University of Toronto's Krembil Centre for Neuroinformatics' virtual learning series Solving Problems in Mental Health Using Multi-Scale Computational Neuroscience. Lessons in this course introduce participants to the study of brain disorders, starting from elemental units like genes and neurons, eventually building up to whole-brain modelling and global activity patterns.

Analysis and Interpretation of Massively Parallel Electrophysiological Data

INCF

Probing the organization of interactions within and across neuronal populations is a promising approach to understanding the principles of brain processing. The rapidly advancing technical capabilities to record from hundreds of neurons in parallel open up new possibilities to disentangle the correlative structure within neuronal networks. However, the complexity of these massive data streams calls for novel, tractable analysis tools that exploit the parallel aspect of the data.

 

Simulating Brain Microcircuit Activity and Signals in Mental Health

Krembil Centre for Neuroinformatics

This course offers lectures on the origin and functional significance of certain electrophysiological signals in the brain, as well as a hands-on tutorial on how to simulate, statistically evaluate, and visualize such signals. Participants will learn the simulation of signals at different spatial scales, including single-cell (neuronal spiking) and global (EEG), and how these may serve as biomarkers in the evaluation of mental health data.

 

Using brainlife.io

brainlife.io

This course provides several visual walkthroughs documenting how to execute various processes in brainlife.io, an open-source, free and secure reproducible neuroscience analysis platform. The platform allows to analyze Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), electroencephalography (EEG) and magnetoencephalography (MEG) data. Data can either be uploaded from local computers or imported from public archives such as OpenNeuro.org.

 

Bayesian Models of Learning and Integration of Neuroimaging Data

Krembil Centre for Neuroinformatics

Bayesian inference (using prior knowledge to generate more accurate predictions about future events or outcomes) has become increasingly applied to the fields of neuroscience and neuroinformatics. In this course, participants are taught how Bayesian statistics may be used to build cognitive models of processes like learning or perception. This course also offers theoretical and practical instruction on dynamic causal modeling as applied to fMRI and EEG data.

 

The Future of Medical Data Sharing in Clinical Neurosciences

EBRAINS

This workshop hosted by HBP, EBRAINS, and the European Academy of Neurology (EAN) aimed to identify and openly discuss all issues and challenges associated with data sharing in Europe: from ethics to data safety and privacy including those specific to data federation such as the development and validation of federated algorithms. 

 

 

Module 3: Computational Models

Mike X. Cohen

This module introduces computational neuroscience by simulating neurons according to the AdEx model. You will learn about generative modeling, dynamical systems, and F-I curves. The MATLAB code introduces live scripts and functions.
