This lecture covers the aims of the Open Source Brain initiative, the current functionality of the website and the range of models already available, and future plans for the project.
This lecture covers NeuronUnit, a library that builds upon SciUnit and integrates with several existing neuroinformatics resources to support validating single-neuron models using data gathered by neurophysiologists.
An introduction to the NeuroElectro project, which aims to organize information on cellular neurophysiology. Speaker: Shreejoy Tripathy
In this lecture, the speaker demonstrates Neurokernel's module interfacing feature by using it to integrate independently developed models of olfactory and vision LPUs based upon experimentally obtained connectivity information.
The lecture covers a brief introduction to neuromorphic engineering, some of the neuromorphic networks that the speaker has developed, and their potential applications, particularly in machine learning.
Simultaneously recorded neurons in non-human primates coordinate their spiking activity in a sequential manner that mirrors the dominant wave propagation directions of the local field potentials.
This talk covers statistical analysis of spike train data, the modeling approach GLM, and the problem of assessing neural synchrony.
This talk covers statistical methods for characterizing neural population responses and extracting structure from high-dimensional neural data.
This presentation covers research to understand the activity of single neurons and populations of neurons in the visual system.
Explore how to setup an epileptic seizure simulation with the TVB graphical user interface. This lesson will show you how to program the epileptor model in the brain network to simulate a epileptic seizure originating in the hippocampus. It will also show how to upload and view mouse connectivity data, as well as give a short introduction to the python script interface of TVB.
Brain network reconstruction from empirical data is of key importance to generate personalized virtual brain models. This lecture will introduce the basic concepts of preprocessing structural, functional and diffusion weighted neuroimages. It highlights the latest methods and pipelines to extract structural as well as functional connectomes according to a multimodal parcellation.
Along the example of a patient with bi-temporal epilepsy, we show step by step how to develop a Virtual Epileptic Patient (VEP) brain model and integrate patient-specific information such as brain connectivity, epileptogenic zone and MRI lesions. The patient's brain network model is then evaluated via simulation, data fitting and mathematical analysis. This lecture demonstrates how to develop novel personalized strategies towards therapy and intervention using TVB.
This lecture focuses on higher-level simulation scenarios using stimulation protocols. We demonstrate how to build stimulation patterns in TVB, and use them in a simulation to induced activity dissipating into experimentally known resting-state networks in human and mouse brain, a well as to obtain EEG recordings reproducing empirical findings of other researchers.
This lecture presents two recent clinical case studies using TVB: stroke recovery and dementia (due to Alzheimer’s Disease (AD)). Using a multi-scale neurophysiological model based on empirical multi-modal neuroimaging data, we show how local and global biophysical parameters characterize changes in individualized patient-specific brain dynamics, predict recovery of motor function for stroke patients, and correlate with individual differences in cognition for AD patients.
