This lecture covers the structured validation process within computational neuroscience, including the tools, services, and methods involved in simulation and analysis.
This lecture discusses the FAIR principles as they apply to electrophysiology data and metadata, the building blocks for community tools and standards, platforms and grassroots initiatives, and the challenges therein.
This session provides users with an introduction to tools and resources that facilitate the implementation of FAIR in their research.
This session will include presentations of infrastructure that embrace the FAIR principles developed by members of the INCF Community.
This lecture provides an overview of The Virtual Brain Simulation Platform.
Demo of the BRIAN Simulator. BRIAN is a free, open source simulator for spiking neural networks. It is written in the Python programming language and is available on almost all platforms. We believe that a simulator should not only save the time of processors, but also the time of scientists. Brian is therefore designed to be easy to learn and use, highly flexible and easily extensible.
NeuroFedora is a volunteer driven initiative to provide a ready to use Fedora based Free/Open Source Software platform for neuroscience. We believe that similar to Free Software, science should be free for all to use, share, modify, and study. The use of Free Software also aids reproducibility, data sharing, and collaboration in the research community. By making the tools used in the scientific process easier to use, NeuroFedora aims to take a step to enable this ideal. The CompNeuro Fedora Lab was specially to enable computational neuroscience. It includes everything you will need to get your work done—modelling software, analysis tools, general productivity tools—all well integrated with the modern GNOME platform to give you a complete operating system.
neurolib is a computational framework for simulating coupled neural mass models written in Python. It helps you to easily load structural brain scan data to construct brain networks where each node is a neural mass representing a single brain area. This network model can be used to simulate whole-brain dynamics. neurolib provides a simulation and optimization framework which allows you to easily implement your own neural mass model, simulate fMRI BOLD activity, analyse the results and fit your model to empirical data.
GeNN (GPU-enhanced Neuronal Networks) framework, which aims to facilitate the use of graphics accelerators for computational models of large-scale neuronal networks to address this challenge. GeNN is an open source library that generates code to accelerate the execution of network simulations on NVIDIA GPUs, through a flexible and extensible interface, which does not require in-depth technical knowledge from the users.
This video gives a short introduction to the EBRAINS data sharing platform, why it was developed, and how it contributes to open data sharing.
This video demonstrates how to find, access, and download data on EBRAINS.
Peer Herholz gives a tour of how popular virtualization tools like Docker and Singularity are playing a crucial role in improving reproducibility and enabling high-performance computing in neuroscience.
Today’s (neuro)scientific computing landscape depends more than ever on selecting, combining, and implementing a range of tools and technologies for each specific use case. For decades, neuroscience users have turned to MATLAB as an integration environment for pioneering and innovative small-scale studies. This lesson consists of a brief talk outlining how MATLAB integrates with today's powerful tools and technologies.
Hierarchical Event Descriptors (HED) fill a major gap in the neuroinformatics standards toolkit, namely the specification of the nature(s) of events and time-limited conditions recorded as having occurred during time series recordings (EEG, MEG, iEEG, fMRI, etc.). Here, the HED Working Group presents an online INCF workshop on the need for, structure of, tools for, and use of HED annotation to prepare neuroimaging time series data for storing, sharing, and advanced analysis.
This workshop will introduce reproducible workflows and a range of tools along the themes of organisation, documentation, analysis, and dissemination.
