Introduction to calcium imaging data

Difficulty level

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