NeuroTools Webinar Series

Neuroscience Information Framework

Presented by the Neuroscience Information Framework (NIF), this series consists of several lectures characterizing cutting-edge, open-source software platforms and computational tools for neuroscientists. This course offers detailed descriptions of various neuroinformatic resources such as cloud-computing services, web-based annotation tools, genome browsers, and platforms for designing and building biophysically detailed models of neurons and neural ensembles.

Session 5.1: Infrastructure for Sensitive Data


This course consists of a three-part session from the second day of INCF's Neuroinformatics Assembly 2023. The lessons describe various on-going efforts within the fields of neuroinformatics and clinical neuroscience to adjust to the increasingly vast volumes of brain data being collected and stored.

Session 1: A FAIR Roadmap for Knowledge Graphs and Ontologies


This course corresponds to the first session of talks given at INCF's Neuroinformatics Assembly 2023. The sessions consists of several lectures, focusing on using the principles of FAIR (findability, accessibility, interoperability, and reusability) to inform future directions in neuroscience and neuroinformatics. In particular, these talks deal with the development of knowledge graphs and ontologies. 


INCF/OCNS Working Group on Computational Neuroscience Software


This working group is a collaboration between OCNS and INCF. The group focuses on evaluating and testing computational neuroscience tools; finding them, testing them, learning how they work, and informing developers of issues to ensure that these tools remain in good shape by having communities looking after them. Since many members of the WG are themselves tool developers, we will also learn from each other and will work towards improving interoperability between related tools.



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.

Deep Learning: Graphs

NYU Center for Data Science

This module provides an introduction to the problem of speech recognition using neural models, emphasizing the CTC loss for training and inference when input and output sequences are of different lengths. It also covers beam search for use during inference, and how that procedure may be modeled at training time using a Graph Transformer Network.


INCF Assembly 2022 - Day 1 Sessions


Sessions from the INCF Neuroinformatics Assembly 2022 day 1. 



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 Neuroinformatics of Neuroanatomy


Neuroanatomy provides one of the unifying frameworks for neuroscience and thus it is not surprising that it provides the basis for many neuroinformatics tools and approaches.  Regardless of whether one is working at the subcellular, cellular or gross anatomical level or whether one is modeling circuitry, molecular pathways or function, at some point, this work will include an anatomical reference.


FAIR Approaches for Electrophysiology


The course provides an introduction to the growing field of electrophysiology standards, infrastructure, and initiatives. From data curation on open research infrastructures like EBRAINS, to overviews of national data analytics platforms like Australia's AEDAPT, the lessons in this course highlight already available resources for the global neuroinformatics commuity while also reinforcing the need for and importance of FAIR science principles in future research projects.


How to Use Allen Institute for Brain Science Resources

Allen Institute for Brain Science

This course features tutorials on how to use Allen atlases and digital brain atlasing tools, including operational and user features of the Allen Mouse Brain Atlas, as well as the Allen Institute's 3D viewing tool, Brain Explorer®.

Building the Brain


Most approaches within computational neuroscience simulate systems, brain networks, local circuits, as they are now. In recent years, homeostatic regulation has been characterized and modeled; however, for understanding diseases that have their origin in genetic defects that emerge at later age, it is important to understand how these defects interact with developmental processes that occur earlier and last longer that the typical period considered for homeostatic studies.


FAIR Approaches for Neuroimaging Research


Over the last three decades, neuroimaging research has seen large strides in the scale, diversity, and complexity of studies, the open availability of data and methodological resources, the quality of instrumentation and multimodal studies, and the number of researchers and consortia. The awareness of rigor and reproducibility has increased with the advent of funding mandates, and with the work done by national and international brain initiatives. Tutorials

This course consists of brief tutorials on, a free and open platform for analyzing and sharing neuroimaging data. During this course, you will learn how to deal with your neuroscientific datasets using for operations such as uploading and version control, as well as how to analyze and share your data. 


Decision Making

Neuromatch Academy

Neuromatch Academy aims to introduce traditional and emerging tools of computational neuroscience to trainees.


The Virtual Brain Node #10 Workshop: Personalized Multi-Scale Brain Simulation

The Virtual Brain

This workshop provides basic knowledge on personalized brain network modeling using the open-source simulation platform The Virtual Brain (TVB). Participants will gain theoretical knowledge and apply this knowledge to construct brain models, process multimodal neuroimaging data for reconstructing individual brains, run simulations, and use supporting neuroinformatics tools such as collaboratories, pipelines, workflows, and data repositories.


Population-Based Data Resources & Integrative Research Methods

Krembil Centre for Neuroinformatics

As research methods and experimental technologies become ever more sophisticated, the amount of health-related data per individual which has become accessible is vast, giving rise to a corresponding need for cross-domain data integration, whole-person modelling, and improved precision medicine. This course provides lessons describing state of the art methods and repositories, as well as a tutorial on computational methods for data integration. 


The Virtual Brain Education Pack (TVB EduPack)

The Virtual Brain

The Virtual Brain EduPack provides didactic use cases for The Virtual Brain (TVB). Typically a use case consists of a jupyter notebook and a didactic video. EduPack use cases help the user to reproduce TVB-based publications or to get started quickly with TVB.


Dynamical Neural Systems


This course consists of several introductory lectures on different aspects of biochemical models. The lectures cover topics such as stability analysis of neural models, oscillations and bursting, and weakly coupled oscillators. You will learn about modeling various scales and properties of neural mechanisms, from firing-rate models of single neurons to pattern generation in visual system hallucinations.
