In this lesson, you will learn about different approaches to modeling learning in neural networks, particularly focusing on system parameters such as firing rates and synaptic weights impact a network.
In this lesson, you will learn about some of the many methods to train spiking neural networks (SNNs) with either no attempt to use gradients, or only use gradients in a limited or constrained way.
This lesson provides an overview of self-supervision as it relates to neural data tasks and the Mine Your Own vieW (MYOW) approach.
This lesson provides a conceptual overview of the rudiments of machine learning, including its bases in traditional statistics and the types of questions it might be applied to. The lesson was presented in the context of the BrainHack School 2020.
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.
This lecture covers a lot of post-war developments in the science of the mind, focusing first on the cognitive revolution, and concluding with living machines.
This lecture provides an overview of depression (epidemiology and course of the disorder), clinical presentation, somatic co-morbidity, and treatment options.
While the previous lesson in the Neuro4ML course dealt with the mechanisms involved in individual synapses, this lesson discusses how synapses and their neurons' firing patterns may change over time.
This is the first of two workshops on reproducibility in science, during which participants are introduced to concepts of FAIR and open science. After discussing the definition of and need for FAIR science, participants are walked through tutorials on installing and using Github and Docker, the powerful, open-source tools for versioning and publishing code and software, respectively.
This lesson contains both a lecture and a tutorial component. The lecture (0:00-20:03 of YouTube video) discusses both the need for intersectional approaches in healthcare as well as the impact of neglecting intersectionality in patient populations. The lecture is followed by a practical tutorial in both Python and R on how to assess intersectional bias in datasets. Links to relevant code and data are found below.
The lecture provides an overview of the core skills and practical solutions required to practice reproducible research.
This lecture covers multiple aspects of FAIR neuroscience data: what makes it unique, the challenges to making it FAIR, the importance of overcoming these challenges, and how data governance comes into play.
This lecture covers the processes, benefits, and challenges involved in designing, collecting, and sharing FAIR neuroscience datasets.
This lecture covers the benefits and difficulties involved when re-using open datasets, and how metadata is important to the process.
This lecture will provide an overview of Addgene, a tool that embraces the FAIR principles developed by members of the INCF Community. This will include an overview of Addgene, their mission, and available resources.
This lecture covers the IBI Data Standards and Sharing Working Group, including its history, aims, and projects.
