This lesson gives an introduction to high-performance computing with the Compute Canada network, first providing an overview of use cases for HPC and then a hands-on tutorial. Though some examples might seem specific to the Calcul Québec, all computing clusters in the Compute Canada network share the same software modules and environments.
This lesson provides a short overview of the main features of the Canadian Open Neuroscience Platform (CONP) Portal, a web interface that facilitates open science for the neuroscience community by simplifying global access to and sharing of datasets and tools. The Portal internalizes the typical cycle of a research project, beginning with data acquisition, followed by data processing with published tools, and ultimately the publication of results with a link to the original dataset.
This talk presents an overview of CBRAIN, a web-based platform that allows neuroscientists to perform computationally intensive data analyses by connecting them to high-performance computing facilities across Canada and around the world.
In this talk the speakers will give a brief introduction of the Fenix Infrastructure and Service Offering, before focusing on Data Safety. The speaker will take the participants through the ETHZ-CSCS offering for EBRAINS and all the HBP Communities highlighting the Infrastructure role in a service implementation in respect of Security. Particular attention will be on showing what tools ETHZ-CSCS provides to a Portal/Service provider such as EBRAINS, MIP/HIP, TVB, NRP amongst others. Finally there will be given a quick glimpse into the future and the role that “multi-tenancy” will play.
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 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.
