Speaker: : Mike X. Cohen

This lesson demonstrates how to use MATLAB to implement a multivariate dimension reduction method, PCA, on time series data.

Difficulty level: Intermediate

Speaker: : Mike X. Cohen

This lesson describes the principles underlying functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI), tractography, and parcellation. These tools and concepts are explained in a broader context of neural connectivity and mental health. 

Difficulty level: Intermediate
Duration: 1:47:22

This tutorial introduces pipelines and methods to compute brain connectomes from fMRI data. With corresponding code and repositories, participants can follow along and learn how to programmatically preprocess, curate, and analyze functional and structural brain data to produce connectivity matrices. 

Difficulty level: Intermediate

This lesson briefly goes over the outline of the Neuroscience for Machine Learners course. 

Difficulty level: Intermediate
Duration: 3:05
Speaker: : Dan Goodman

This lesson delves into the the structure of one of the brain's most elemental computational units, the neuron, and how said structure influences computational neural network models. 

Difficulty level: Intermediate

Speaker: : Marcus Ghosh

This lesson goes over the basic mechanisms of neural synapses, the space between neurons where signals may be transmitted. 

Difficulty level: Intermediate
Duration: 7:03
Speaker: : Marcus Ghosh

While the previous lesson in the Neuro4ML course dealt with the mechanisms involved in individual synapses, this lesson discusses how synapses and their neurons' firing patterns may change over time. 

Difficulty level: Intermediate
Duration: 4:48
Speaker: : Marcus Ghosh

Whereas the previous two lessons described the biophysical and signalling properties of individual neurons, this lesson describes properties of those units when part of larger networks. 

Difficulty level: Intermediate

Speaker: : Marcus Ghosh

This lesson introduces some practical exercises which accompany the Synapses and Networks portion of this Neuroscience for Machine Learners course. 

Difficulty level: Intermediate
Duration: 3:51
Speaker: : Dan Goodman

This lesson introduces the practical exercises which accompany the previous lessons on animal and human connectomes in the brain and nervous system. 

Difficulty level: Intermediate
Duration: 4:10
Speaker: : Dan Goodman

This lesson explores how researchers try to understand neural networks, particularly in the case of observing neural activity. 

Difficulty level: Intermediate
Duration: 8:20
Speaker: : Marcus Ghosh

As the previous lesson of this course described how researchers acquire neural data, this lesson will discuss how to go about interpreting and analysing the data. 

Difficulty level: Intermediate
Duration: 9:24
Speaker: : Marcus Ghosh

In this lesson you will learn about the motivation behind manipulating neural activity, and what forms that may take in various experimental designs. 

Difficulty level: Intermediate
Duration: 8:42
Speaker: : Marcus Ghosh

In this lesson, you will learn about one particular aspect of decision making: reaction times. In other words, how long does it take to take a decision based on a stream of information arriving continuously over time?

Difficulty level: Intermediate
Duration: 6:01
Speaker: : Dan Goodman

In this lesson, you will hear about some of the open issues in the field of neuroscience, as well as a discussion about whether neuroscience works, and how can we know?

Difficulty level: Intermediate
Duration: 6:54
Speaker: : Marcus Ghosh

This lesson discusses a gripping neuroscientific question: why have neurons developed the discrete action potential, or spike, as a principle method of communication? 

Difficulty level: Intermediate
Duration: 9:34
Speaker: : Dan Goodman

This lecture provides an introduction to the Brain Imaging Data Structure (BIDS), a standard for organizing human neuroimaging datasets.

Difficulty level: Intermediate
Duration: 56:49

This lecture and tutorial focuses on measuring human functional brain networks, as well as how to account for inherent variability within those networks. 

Difficulty level: Intermediate
Duration: 50:44
Speaker: : Caterina Gratton

In this lesson, you will learn about the Python project Nipype, an open-source, community-developed initiative under the umbrella of NiPy. Nipype provides a uniform interface to existing neuroimaging software and facilitates interaction between these packages within a single workflow.
