Lecture on functional brain parcellations and a set of tutorials on bootstrap agregation of stable clusters (BASC) for fMRI brain parcellation which were part of the 2019 Neurohackademy, a 2-week hands-on summer institute in neuroimaging and data science held at the University of Washington eScience Institute.
A brief overview of the Python programming language, with an emphasis on tools relevant to data scientists. This lecture was part of the 2018 Neurohackademy, a 2-week hands-on summer institute in neuroimaging and data science held at the University of Washington eScience Institute.
Basic knowledge and comfort with Command Line Interfaces (CLI) is highly beneficial for learning how to use countless neuroscience tools and acquiring programming skills. Furthermore, CLIs are better disposed to reproducibility, automation, concatenation in pipelines, execution on multiple platforms, and remote access.
Ross Markello takes you through this general introduction to the essentials of navigating through a Bash terminal environment. The lesson is based on the Software Carpentries "Introduction to the Shell" and was given in the context of the BrainHack School 2020.
Ross Markello provides an overview of Python applications to data analysis, demonstrating why it has become ubiquitous in data science and neuroscience.
The lesson was given in the context of the BrainHack School 2020.
Introduction to the types of glial cells, homeostasis (influence of cerebral blood flow and influence on neurons), insulation and protection of axons (myelin sheath; nodes of Ranvier), microglia and reactions of the CNS to injury.
Learn how to handle writing very large data in MatNWB
Overview of the CaImAn package, and demonstration of usage with NWB
Overview of the SpikeInterface package, including demonstration of data loading, preprocessing, spike sorting, and comparison of spike sorters
Overview of the NWBWidgets package, including coverage of different data types, and information for building custom widgets within this framework
Introduction to the principal of anatomical organization of neural systems in the human brain and spinal cord that mediate sensation, integrate signals, and motivate behavior.
This lecture focuses on the comprehension of nociception and pain sensation. It highlights how the somatosensory system and different molecular partners are involved in nociception and how nociception and pain sensation are studied in rodents and humans and the development of pain therapy.
