This lecture covers how to make modeling workflows FAIR by working through a practical example, dissecting the steps within the workflow, and detailing the tools and resources used at each step.
This lecture focuses on 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.
This lesson consists of a demonstration 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, and is designed to be easy to learn and use, highly flexible, and easily extensible.
This lesson provides a demonstration of NeuroFedora, a volunteer-driven initiative to provide a ready-to-use Fedora-based free and open-source software platform for neuroscience. By making the tools used in the scientific process easier to use, NeuroFedora aims to aid reproducibility, data sharing, and collaboration in the research community.The CompNeuro Fedora Lab was specially to enable computational neuroscience.
This lesson provides an introduction and live demonstration of neurolib, a computational framework for simulating coupled neural mass models written in Python. 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.
In this lesson, you will learn about the GeNN (GPU-enhanced Neuronal Networks) framework, which aims to facilitate the use of graphics accelerators for computational models of large-scale neuronal networks. 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.
This lesson 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.
This lesson gives a demonstration of how to use SciUnit, a Pythonic framework for data-driven unit testing that separates the interface from the implementation, respecting the diversity of conventions for modeling and data collection.
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.
In this talk, challenges of handling complex neuroscientific data are discussed, as well as tools and services for the annotation, organization, storage, and sharing of these data.
This lecture describes the neuroscience data respository G-Node Infrastructure (GIN), which provides platform independent data access and enables easy data publishing.
