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 discusses what defines an integrative approach regarding research and methods, including various study designs and models which are appropriate choices when attempting to bridge data domains; a necessity when whole-person modelling.
This lecture covers the history of behaviorism and the ultimate challenge to behaviorism.
This lecture covers various learning theories.
This lecture covers a lot of post-war developments in the science of the mind, focusing first on the cognitive revolution, and concluding with living machines.
This opening lecture from INCF's Short Course in Neuroinformatics provides an overview of the field of neuroinformatics itself, as well as laying out an argument for the necessity for developing more sophisticated approaches towards FAIR data management principles in neuroscience.
This lesson aims to define computational neuroscience in general terms, while providing specific examples of highly successful computational neuroscience projects.
This lecture covers a wide range of aspects regarding neuroinformatics and data governance, describing both their historical developments and current trajectories. Particular tools, platforms, and standards to make your research more FAIR are also discussed.
This lecture covers an Introduction to neuron anatomy and signaling, and different types of models, including the Hodgkin-Huxley model.
The Virtual Brain (TVB) is an open-source, multi-scale, multi-modal brain simulation platform. In this lesson, you get introduced to brain simulation in general and to TVB in particular. This lesson also presents the newest approaches for clinical applications of TVB - that is, for stroke, epilepsy, brain tumors, and Alzheimer’s disease - and show how brain simulation can improve diagnostics, therapy, and understanding of neurological disease.
This lesson explains the mathematics of neural mass models and their integration to a coupled network. You will also learn about bifurcation analysis, an important technique in the understanding of non-linear systems and as a fundamental method in the design of brain simulations. Lastly, the application of the described mathematics is demonstrated in the exploration of brain stimulation regimes.
In this lesson, the simulation of a virtual epileptic patient is presented as an example of advanced brain simulation as a translational approach to deliver improved clinical results. You will learn about the fundamentals of epilepsy, as well as the concepts underlying epilepsy simulation. By using an iPython notebook, the detailed process of this approach is explained step by step. In the end, you are able to perform simple epilepsy simulations your own.
This lecture presents the Graphical (GUI) and Command Line (CLI) User Interface of TVB. Alongside with the speakers, explore and interact with all means necessary to generate, manipulate and visualize connectivity and network dynamics.
This lecture briefly introduces The Virtual Brain (TVB), a multi-scale, multi-modal neuroinformatics platform for full brain network simulations using biologically realistic connectivity, as well as its potential neuroscience applications (e.g., epilepsy cases).
This lecture introduces the theoretical background and foundations that led to the development of TVB, its architecture, and features of its major software components.
This lecture provides an overview of successful open-access projects aimed at describing complex neuroscientific models, and makes a case for expanded use of resources in support of reproducibility and validation of models against experimental data.
This lesson provides an introduction to the lifecycle of EEG/ERP data, describing the various phases through which these data pass, from collection to publication.
