Félix-Antoine Fortin from Calcul Québec gives an introduction to high-performance computing with the Compute Canada network, first providing an overview of use cases for HPC and then a hand-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.
The lesson was given in the context of the BrainHack School 2020.
As a part of NeuroHackademy 2020, Tara Madhyastha (University of Washington), Andrew Crabb (AWS), and Ariel Rokem (University of Washington) give a lecture on Cloud Computing, focusing on Amazon Web Services.

The Canadian Open Neuroscience Platform (CONP) Portal is a web interface that facilitates open science for the neuroscience community by simplifying global access to and sharing of datasets and tools. The Portal internalizes the typical cycle of a research project, beginning with data acquisition, followed by data processing with published tools, and ultimately the publication of results with a link to the original dataset.
In this video, Samir Das and Tristan Glatard give a short overview of the main features of the CONP Portal.
Shawn Brown 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 talk was given in the context of a Ludmer Centre event in 2019.
The workshop was designed to introduce all aspects of using Miniscopes, including basic principles of Miniscope design and imaging, how to build and attach a Miniscope, how to implant a GRIN lens for imaging deep structures, and how to analyze imaging data. It also covered the most recent developments in Miniscope technology and highlighted some of the best advances in this exciting and growing field. The event was organized by Daniel Aharoni, Denise Cai, and Tristan Shuman, and it was hosted at MetaCell's Workspace for Calcium Imaging Analysis.
This lesson is an overview of the Miniscope project. It will give motivation for why we have developed Miniscopes, how they've been developed, why they may be useful for researchers, and the differences between previous and current versions. While directly applicable to the UCLA Miniscope project, this information can be applied to most mainstream miniature microscopes, including both open source and commercially available models.
This lesson will go through the theory and practical techniques for implanting a GRIN lens for imaging in mice.
Learn how to build a Miniscope and stream data, including an overview of the software involved.
