This lesson gives an in-depth introduction of ethics in the field of artificial intelligence, particularly in the context of its impact on humans and public interest. As the healthcare sector becomes increasingly affected by the implementation of ever stronger AI algorithms, this lecture covers key interests which must be protected going forward, including privacy, consent, human autonomy, inclusiveness, and equity.
This lesson describes a definitional framework for fairness and health equity in the age of the algorithm. While acknowledging the impressive capability of machine learning to positively affect health equity, this talk outlines potential (and actual) pitfalls which come with such powerful tools, ultimately making the case for collaborative, interdisciplinary, and transparent science as a way to operationalize fairness in health equity.
This lesson contains both a lecture and a tutorial component. The lecture (0:00-20:03 of YouTube video) discusses both the need for intersectional approaches in healthcare as well as the impact of neglecting intersectionality in patient populations. The lecture is followed by a practical tutorial in both Python and R on how to assess intersectional bias in datasets. Links to relevant code and data are found below.
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 covers different perspectives on the study of the mental, focusing on the difference between Mind and Brain.
This lecture goes into further detail about the hard problem of developing a scientific discipline for subjective consciousness.
This lecture focuses on the rationale for employing neuroimaging methods for movement disorders.
This lecture provides an overview of some of the essential concepts in neuropharmacology (e.g. receptor binding, agonism, antagonism), an introduction to pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetics, and an overview of the drug discovery process relative to diseases of the central nervous system.
This lecture gives an introduction to the types of glial cells, homeostasis (influence of cerebral blood flow and influence on neurons), insulation and protection of axons (myelin sheath; nodes of Ranvier), microglia and reactions of the CNS to injury.
The lecture provides an overview of the core skills and practical solutions required to practice reproducible research.
This lecture covers multiple aspects of FAIR neuroscience data: what makes it unique, the challenges to making it FAIR, the importance of overcoming these challenges, and how data governance comes into play.
This lecture covers the processes, benefits, and challenges involved in designing, collecting, and sharing FAIR neuroscience datasets.
This lecture covers the benefits and difficulties involved when re-using open datasets, and how metadata is important to the process.
This lecture provides guidance on the ethical considerations the clinical neuroimaging community faces when applying the FAIR principles to their research.
This lecture will provide an overview of Addgene, a tool that embraces the FAIR principles developed by members of the INCF Community. This will include an overview of Addgene, their mission, and available resources.
