Difficulty level: Intermediate

Duration: 1:11:04

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

Duration: 1:30:41

Speaker: : Frank Mazza

Course:

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

Speaker: : Erin Dickie and John Griffiths

Course:

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

Duration: 1:39:04

Speaker: : Erin Dickie and John Griffiths

Course:

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.

Difficulty level: Intermediate

Duration: 1:16:10

Speaker: : John Griffiths

This lesson breaks down the principles of Bayesian inference and how it relates to cognitive processes and functions like learning and perception. It is then explained how cognitive models can be built using Bayesian statistics in order to investigate how our brains interface with their environment.

This lesson corresponds to slides 1-64 in the PDF below.

Difficulty level: Intermediate

Duration: 1:28:14

Speaker: : Andreea Diaconescu

This is a tutorial on designing a Bayesian inference model to map belief trajectories, with emphasis on gaining familiarity with Hierarchical Gaussian Filters (HGFs).
