The practical usage of The Virtual brain in its graphical user interface and via python scripts is introduced. In the graphical user interface, you are guided through its data repository, simulator, phase plane exploration tool, connectivity editor, stimulus generator and the provided analyses. The implemented iPython notebooks of TVB are presented, and since they are public, can be used for further exploration of The Virtual brain.

Colt Steele provides a comprehensive introduction to the command line and 50 popular Linux commands.  This is a long course (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.

This module explores sensation in the brain: what organs are involved, sensory pathways, processing centers, and theories of integration. We cover sensory transduction, vision, audition olfaction, gustation, and somatosensation.

Difficulty level: Beginner
Duration: 7:17
Speaker: : Colin Fausnaught

This module covers how the brain interacts with the world through motor movements. Motor movements underlie so much of our functioning, our speech, the opening and closing of our eyes, and the beating of our hearts. We’ll learn about areas of the brain involved in movement and some of its pathways.

This module covers the structure and function of the neuron, its components and mechanisms, action potentials, and the many glial cells that support it.

Difficulty level: Beginner

Speaker: : Colin Fausnaught

This module explains how neurons come together to create the networks that give rise to our thoughts. The totality of our neurons and their connection is called our connectome. Learn how this connectome changes as we learn, and computes information. We will also learn about physiological phenomena of the brain such as synchronicity that gives rise to brain waves.

Speaker: : Ida Aasebø

This video introduces the key principles for data organisation and explains how you could make your data FAIR for data sharing on EBRAINS.

KnowledgeSpace (KS) is a data discoverability portal and neuroscience encyclopedia that was developed to make it easier for the neuroscience community to find publicly available datasets that adhere to the FAIR Principles and to provide an integrated view of neuroscience concepts found in Wikipedia and NeuroLex linked with PubMed and 17 of the world's leading neuroscience repositories. In short, KS provides a single point of entry where reseaerchers can search for a neuroscience concept of interest and receive results that include: i. a description of the term found in Wikipedia/NeuroLex, ii. links to publicly available datasets related to the concept of interest, and iii. up-to-date references that support the concept of interests found in PubMed. APIs are available so that developers of other neuroscience research infrastructures can integrate KS components in their infrastructures. If your repository or your favorite repository is not indexed in KS, please contact us.
