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 lecture describes the principles of EEG electrode placement in both 2- and 3-dimensional formats.
This tutorial walks users through performing Fourier Transform (FFT) spectral analysis of a single EEG channel using MATLAB.
This tutorial builds on the previous lesson's demonstration of spectral analysis of one EEG channel. Here, users will learn how to compute and visualize spectral power from all EEG channels using MATLAB.
In this lesson, users will learn more about the steady-state visually evoked potential (SSEVP), as well as how to create and interpret topographical maps derived from such studies.
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.
In the final lesson of this module, users will learn how to correlate endogenous alpha power with SSVEP amplitude from EEG data using MATLAB.
This lesson provides an introduction to biologically detailed computational modelling of neural dynamics, including neuron membrane potential simulation and F-I curves.
In this lesson, users learn how to use MATLAB to build an adaptive exponential integrate and fire (AdEx) neuron model.
In this lesson, users learn about the practical differences between MATLAB scripts and functions, as well as how to embed their neuronal simulation into a callable function.
This lesson teaches users how to generate a frequency-current (F-I) curve, which describes the function that relates the net synaptic current (I) flowing into a neuron to its firing rate (F).
This lesson is a general overview of overarching concepts in neuroinformatics research, with a particular focus on clinical approaches to defining, measuring, studying, diagnosing, and treating various brain disorders. Also described are the complex, multi-level nature of brain disorders and the data associated with them, from genes and individual cells up to cortical microcircuits and whole-brain network dynamics. Given the heterogeneity of brain disorders and their underlying mechanisms, this lesson lays out a case for multiscale neuroscience data integration.
This is the first of two workshops on reproducibility in science, during which participants are introduced to concepts of FAIR and open science. After discussing the definition of and need for FAIR science, participants are walked through tutorials on installing and using Github and Docker, the powerful, open-source tools for versioning and publishing code and software, respectively.
This is a hands-on tutorial on PLINK, the open source whole genome association analysis toolset. The aims of this tutorial are to teach users how to perform basic quality control on genetic datasets, as well as to identify and understand GWAS summary statistics.
This is a tutorial on using the open-source software PRSice to calculate a set of polygenic risk scores (PRS) for a study sample. Users will also learn how to read PRS into R, visualize distributions, and perform basic association analyses.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
