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

In this lesson, users will learn about human brain signals as measured by electroencephalography (EEG), as well as associated neural signatures such as steady state visually evoked potentials (SSVEPs) and alpha oscillations.

This lesson teaches users how to extract edogenous brain waves from EEG data, specifically oscillations constrained to the 8-12 Hz frequency band, conventionally named alpha. 

Difficulty level: Intermediate

This is a continuation of the talk on the cellular mechanisms of neuronal communication, this time at the level of brain microcircuits and associated global signals like those measureable by electroencephalography (EEG). This lecture also discusses EEG biomarkers in mental health disorders, and how those cortical signatures may be simulated digitally.

Speaker: : Etay Hay

This is an in-depth guide on EEG signals and their interaction within brain microcircuits. Participants are also shown techniques and software for simulating, analyzing, and visualizing these signals.

Difficulty level: Intermediate

Speaker: : Frank Mazza

In this tutorial on simulating whole-brain activity using Python, participants can follow along using corresponding code and repositories, learning the basics of neural oscillatory dynamics, evoked responses and EEG signals, ultimately leading to the design of a network model of whole-brain anatomical connectivity.

Speaker: : John Griffiths

This lesson describes spike timing-dependent plasticity (STDP), a biological process that adjusts the strength of connections between neurons in the brain, and how one can implement or mimic this process in a computational model. You will also find links for practical exercises at the bottom of this page.
