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 lesson provides a short overview of the main features of the Canadian Open Neuroscience Platform (CONP) Portal, 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.
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 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 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.
In this talk, challenges of handling complex neuroscientific data are discussed, as well as tools and services for the annotation, organization, storage, and sharing of these data.
This lecture describes the neuroscience data respository G-Node Infrastructure (GIN), which provides platform independent data access and enables easy data publishing.
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.
