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.
This lecture provides an introduction to Plato’s concept of rationality and Aristotle’s concept of empiricism, and the enduring discussion between rationalism and empiricism to this day.
This lecture goes into further detail about the hard problem of developing a scientific discipline for subjective consciousness.
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.
This lesson provides an overview of the structure and function of the neuron, its components and mechanisms, action potentials, and the many glial cells that support it.
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.
This lecture covers the history of behaviorism and the ultimate challenge to behaviorism.
This lecture covers various learning theories.
In this lesson, you will learn about how genetics can contribute to our understanding of psychiatric phenotypes.
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.
This tutorial shows how to use the UCSC genome browser to find a list of genes in a given genomic region.
