The Allen Mouse Brain Atlas is a genome-wide, high-resolution atlas of gene expression throughout the adult mouse brain. This tutorial describes the basic search and navigation features of the Allen Mouse Brain Atlas.
The Allen Developing Mouse Brain Atlas is a detailed atlas of gene expression across mouse brain development. This tutorial describes the basic search and navigation features of the Allen Developing Mouse Brain Atlas.
This tutorial demonstrates how to use the differential search feature of the Allen Mouse Brain Atlas to find gene markers for different regions of the brain, as well as to visualize this gene expression in three-dimensional space. Differential search is also available for the Allen Developing Mouse Brain Atlas and the Allen Human Brain Atlas.
The Mouse Phenome Database (MPD) provides access to primary experimental trait data, genotypic variation, protocols and analysis tools for mouse genetic studies. Data are contributed by investigators worldwide and represent a broad scope of phenotyping endpoints and disease-related traits in naïve mice and those exposed to drugs, environmental agents or other treatments. MPD ensures rigorous curation of phenotype data and supporting documentation using relevant ontologies and controlled vocabularies. As a repository of curated and integrated data, MPD provides a means to access/re-use baseline data, as well as allows users to identify sensitized backgrounds for making new mouse models with genome editing technologies, analyze trait co-inheritance, benchmark assays in their own laboratories, and many other research applications. MPD’s primary source of funding is NIDA. For this reason, a majority of MPD data is neuro- and behavior-related.
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.
Presented by the OHBM OpenScienceSIG, this lesson covers how containers can be useful for running the same software on different platforms and sharing analysis pipelines with other researchers.
This lesson gives a description of the BrainHealth Databank, a repository of many types of health-related data, whose aim is to accelerate research, improve care, and to help better understand and diagnose mental illness, as well as develop new treatments and prevention strategies.
This lesson corresponds to slides 46-78 of the PDF below.
This hands-on tutorial walks you through DataJoint platform, highlighting features and schema which can be used to build robost neuroscientific pipelines.
This lecture covers how to make modeling workflows FAIR by working through a practical example, dissecting the steps within the workflow, and detailing the tools and resources used at each step.
This lecture focuses on the structured validation process within computational neuroscience, including the tools, services, and methods involved in simulation and analysis.
This lecture discusses the FAIR principles as they apply to electrophysiology data and metadata, the building blocks for community tools and standards, platforms and grassroots initiatives, and the challenges therein.
This session provides users with an introduction to tools and resources that facilitate the implementation of FAIR in their research.
This session will include presentations of infrastructure that embrace the FAIR principles developed by members of the INCF Community.
This lecture provides an overview of The Virtual Brain Simulation Platform.
This lesson consists of a demonstration of the BRIAN Simulator. BRIAN is a free, open-source simulator for spiking neural networks. It is written in the Python programming language and is available on almost all platforms, and is designed to be easy to learn and use, highly flexible, and easily extensible.
This lesson provides a demonstration of NeuroFedora, a volunteer-driven initiative to provide a ready-to-use Fedora-based free and open-source software platform for neuroscience. By making the tools used in the scientific process easier to use, NeuroFedora aims to aid reproducibility, data sharing, and collaboration in the research community.The CompNeuro Fedora Lab was specially to enable computational neuroscience.
This lesson provides an introduction and live demonstration of neurolib, a computational framework for simulating coupled neural mass models written in Python. Neurolib provides a simulation and optimization framework which allows you to easily implement your own neural mass model, simulate fMRI BOLD activity, analyse the results and fit your model to empirical data.
In this lesson, you will learn about the GeNN (GPU-enhanced Neuronal Networks) framework, which aims to facilitate the use of graphics accelerators for computational models of large-scale neuronal networks. GeNN is an open-source library that generates code to accelerate the execution of network simulations on NVIDIA GPUs, through a flexible and extensible interface, which does not require in-depth technical knowledge from the users.
