Research Resource Identifiers (RRIDs) are ID numbers assigned to help researchers cite key resources (e.g., antibodies, model organisms, and software projects) in biomedical literature to improve the transparency of research methods.
This lesson gives an introduction to high-performance computing with the Compute Canada network, first providing an overview of use cases for HPC and then a hands-on tutorial. Though some examples might seem specific to the Calcul Québec, all computing clusters in the Compute Canada network share the same software modules and environments.
This talk presents an overview of CBRAIN, a web-based platform that allows neuroscientists to perform computationally intensive data analyses by connecting them to high-performance computing facilities across Canada and around the world.
Whereas the previous lesson of this course outlined how to build a processing pipeline for a single participant, this lesson discusses analysis pipelines for multiple participants simultaneously.
In addition to outlining the motivations behind preprocessing EEG data in general, this lesson covers the first step in preprocessing data with EEGLAB, importing raw data.
This tutorial demonstrates how to re-reference and resample raw data in EEGLAB, why such steps are important or useful in the preprocessing pipeline, and how choices made at this step may affect subsequent analyses.
This tutorial instructs users how to visually inspect partially pre-processed neuroimaging data in EEGLAB, specifically how to use the data browser to investigate specific channels, epochs, or events for removable artifacts, biological (e.g., eye blinks, muscle movements, heartbeat) or otherwise (e.g., corrupt channel, line noise).
This tutorial provides instruction on how to use EEGLAB to further preprocess EEG datasets by identifying and discarding bad channels which, if left unaddressed, can corrupt and confound subsequent analysis steps.
This module covers many of the types of non-invasive neurotech and neuroimaging devices including electroencephalography (EEG), electromyography (EMG), electroneurography (ENG), magnetoencephalography (MEG), and more.
Neuronify is an educational tool meant to create intuition for how neurons and neural networks behave. You can use it to combine neurons with different connections, just like the ones we have in our brain, and explore how changes on single cells lead to behavioral changes in important networks. Neuronify is based on an integrate-and-fire model of neurons. This is one of the simplest models of neurons that exist. It focuses on the spike timing of a neuron and ignores the details of the action potential dynamics. These neurons are modeled as simple RC circuits. When the membrane potential is above a certain threshold, a spike is generated and the voltage is reset to its resting potential. This spike then signals other neurons through its synapses.
Neuronify aims to provide a low entry point to simulation-based neuroscience.
EyeWire is a game to map the brain. Players are challenged to map branches of a neuron from one side of a cube to the other in a 3D puzzle. Players scroll through the cube and reconstruct neurons with the help of an artificial intelligence algorithm developed at Seung Lab in Princeton University. EyeWire gameplay advances neuroscience by helping researchers discover how neurons connect to process visual information.
