An introduction to data management, manipulation, visualization, and analysis for neuroscience. Students will learn scientific programming in Python, and use this to work with example data from areas such as cognitive-behavioral research, single-cell recording, EEG, and structural and functional MRI. Basic signal processing techniques including filtering are covered. The course includes a Jupyter Notebook and video tutorials.
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 talk gives a brief overview of current efforts to collect and share the Brain Reference Architecture (BRA) data involved in the construction of a whole-brain architecture that assigns functions to major brain organs.
This brief talk discusses the idea that music, as a naturalistic stimulus, offers a window into higher cognition and various levels of neural architecture.
In this short talk you will learn about The Neural System Laboratory, which aims to develop and implement new technologies for analysis of brain architecture, connectivity, and brain-wide gene and molecular level organization.
Neuronify is an educational tool meant to create intuition for how neurons and neural networks behave. You can use it to combine neurons with different connections, just like the ones we have in our brain, and explore how changes on single cells lead to behavioral changes in important networks. Neuronify is based on an integrate-and-fire model of neurons. This is one of the simplest models of neurons that exist. It focuses on the spike timing of a neuron and ignores the details of the action potential dynamics. These neurons are modeled as simple RC circuits. When the membrane potential is above a certain threshold, a spike is generated and the voltage is reset to its resting potential. This spike then signals other neurons through its synapses.
Neuronify aims to provide a low entry point to simulation-based neuroscience.
This lesson provides an introduction the International Neuroinformatics Coordinating Facility (INCF), its mission towards FAIR neuroscience, and future directions.
This talk describes the NIH-funded SPARC Data Structure, and how this project navigates ontology development while keeping in mind the FAIR science principles.
This lesson consists of a brief discussion around this sessions previous talks.
In this lecture, you will learn about virtual research environments (VREs) and their technical limitations, (i.e., a computing platform and the software stack behind it) and the security measures which should be considered during implementation.
This lesson consists of a panel discussion, wrapping up the INCF Neuroinformatics Assembly 2023 workshop Research Workflows for Collaborative Neuroscience.
This brief talk outlines the obstacles and opportunities involved in striving for more open and reproducible publishing, highlighting the need for investment in the technical and governance sectors of FAIR data and software.
This lecture gives an introduction to the INCF Short Course: Introduction to Neuroinformatics.
Presented by the OHBM OpenScienceSIG, this lesson covers how containers can be useful for running the same software on different platforms and sharing analysis pipelines with other researchers.
