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.

This lecture covers how you can make your data public through EBRAINS. This talk focuses on the ethical considerations for sharing data, the requirements that are imposed by various regulations, particularly for sharing human data. The lecture also includes a discussion of how EBRAINS designs its services to deal with the ethical and regulatory aspects of sharing these kinds of data.

Difficulty level: Intermediate
