This lesson is an overview of transcriptomics, from fundamental concepts of the central dogma and RNA sequencing at the single-cell level, to how genetic expression underlies diversity in cell phenotypes.
This tutorial demonstrates how to perform cell-type deconvolution in order to estimate how proportions of cell-types in the brain change in response to various conditions. While these techniques may be useful in addressing a wide range of scientific questions, this tutorial will focus on the cellular changes associated with major depression (MDD).
This lesson explains the fundamental principles of neuronal communication, such as neuronal spiking, membrane potentials, and cellular excitability, and how these electrophysiological features of the brain may be modelled and simulated digitally.
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.
This lesson gives a description of the BrainHealth Databank, a repository of many types of health-related data, whose aim is to accelerate research, improve care, and to help better understand and diagnose mental illness, as well as develop new treatments and prevention strategies.
This lesson corresponds to slides 46-78 of the PDF below.
This lecture covers the emergence of cognitive science after the Second World War as an interdisciplinary field for studying the mind, with influences from anthropology, cybernetics, and artificial intelligence.
This lecture covers a lot of post-war developments in the science of the mind, focusing first on the cognitive revolution, and concluding with living machines.
Maximize Your Research With Cloud Workspaces is a talk aimed at researchers who are looking for innovative ways to set up and execute their life science data analyses in a collaborative, extensible, open-source cloud environment. This panel discussion is brought to you by MetaCell and scientists from leading universities who share their experiences of advanced analysis and collaborative learning through the Cloud.
In this lesson, you will learn about data management within the Open Data Commons (ODC) framework, and in particular, how Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) data is stored, shared, and published. You will also hear about Frictionless Data, an open-source toolkit aimed at simplifying the data experience.
This talk describes the NIH-funded SPARC Data Structure, and how this project navigates ontology development while keeping in mind the FAIR science principles.
This talk goes over Neurobagel, an open-source platform developed for improved dataset sharing and searching.
This video gives a brief introduction to the second session of talks from INCF's Neuroinformatics Assembly 2023.
This brief video provides an introduction to the third session of INCF's Neuroinformatics Assembly 2023, focusing on how to streamling cross-platform data integration in a neuroscientific context.
In this talk, you will learn about the standardization schema for data formats among two of the US BRAIN Initiative networks: the Cell Census Network (BICCN) and the Cell Atlas Network (BICAN).
In this lesson, you will learn about the BRAIN Initiative Cell Atlas Network (BICAN) and how this project adopts a federated approach to data sharing.
This talk discusses the BRAIN Initiative Cell Atlas Network (BICAN), taking a look specifically at how this network approaches the design, development, and maintenance of specimen and sequencing library portals.
This final lesson of the course consists of the panel discussion for Streamlining Cross-Platform Data Integration session during the first day of INCF's Neuroinformatics Assembly 2023.
