This lesson continues with the second workshop on reproducible science, focusing on additional open source tools for researchers and data scientists, such as the R programming language for data science, as well as associated tools like RStudio and R Markdown. Additionally, users are introduced to Python and iPython notebooks, Google Colab, and are given hands-on tutorials on how to create a Binder environment, as well as various containers in Docker and Singularity.
This lesson describes the fundamentals of genomics, from central dogma to design and implementation of GWAS, to the computation, analysis, and interpretation of polygenic risk scores.
This lesson contains the slides (pptx) of a lecture discussing the necessary concepts and tools for taking into account population stratification and admixture in the context of genome-wide association studies (GWAS). The free-access software Tractor and its advantages in GWAS are also discussed.
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 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 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 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 history of behaviorism and the ultimate challenge to behaviorism.
This lecture covers various learning theories.
In this lesson, you will learn about how genetics can contribute to our understanding of psychiatric phenotypes.
This lesson provides an introduction to the lifecycle of EEG/ERP data, describing the various phases through which these data pass, from collection to publication.
In this lesson you will learn about experimental design for EEG acquisition, as well as the first phases of the EEG/ERP data lifecycle.
This lesson provides an overview of the current regulatory measures in place regarding experimental data security and privacy.
In this lesson, you will learn the appropriate methods for collection of both data and associated metadata during EEG experiments.
This lesson goes over methods for managing EEG/ERP data after it has been collected, from annotation to publication.
In this final lesson of the course, you will learn broadly about EEG signal processing, as well as specific applications which make this kind of brain signal valuable to researchers and clinicians.
