As models in neuroscience have become increasingly complex, it has become more difficult to share all aspects of models and model analysis, hindering model accessibility and reproducibility. In this session, we will discuss existing resources for promoting FAIR data and models in computational neuroscience, their impact on the field, and the remaining barriers

 

This lecture covers how FAIR practices affect personalized data models, including workflows, challenges, and how to improve these practices.

Much like neuroinformatics, data science uses techniques from computational science to derive meaningful results from large complex datasets. In this session, we will explore the relationship between neuroinformatics and data science, by emphasizing a range of data science approaches and activities, ranging from the development and application of statistical methods, through the establishment of communities and platforms, and through the implementation of open-source software tools. Rather than rigid distinctions, in the data science of neuroinformatics, these activities and approaches intersect and interact in dynamic ways. Together with a panel of cutting-edge neuro-data-scientist speakers, we will explore these dynamics

 

This lecture covers how brainlife.io works, and how it can be applied to neuroscience data.

Since their introduction in 2016, the FAIR data principles have gained increasing recognition and adoption in global neuroscience.  FAIR defines a set of high-level principles and practices for making digital objects, including data, software, and workflows, Findable, Accessible,  Interoperable, and Reusable.  But FAIR is not a specification;  it leaves many of the specifics up to individual scientific disciplines to define.  INCF has been leading the way in promoting, defining, and implementing FAIR data practices for neuroscience.  We have been bringing together researchers, infrastructure providers, industry, and publishers through our programs and networks.  In this session, we will hear some perspectives on FAIR neuroscience from some of these stakeholders who have been working to develop and use FAIR tools for neuroscience.  We will engage in a discussion on questions such as:  how is neuroscience doing with respect to FAIR?  What have been the successes?  What is currently very difficult? Where does neuroscience need to go?

 

This lecture covers FAIR atlases, from their background, their construction, and how they can be created in line with the FAIR principles.

Linear algebra is the branch of mathematics concerning linear equations such as linear functions and their representations through matrices and vector spaces. As such, it underlies a huge variety of analyses in the neurosciences.  This lesson provides a useful refresher which will facilitate the use of Matlab, Octave, and various matrix-manipulation and machine-learning software.
