This lecture covers the linking neuronal activity to behavior using AI-based online detection. 

Difficulty level: Beginner
Duration: 30:39

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

Dr. Guangyu Robert Yang describes how Recurrent Neural Networks (RNNs) trained with machine learning techniques on cognitive tasks have become a widely accepted tool for neuroscientists. In comparison to traditional computational models in neuroscience, RNNs can offer substantial advantages at explaining complex behavior and neural activity patterns. Their use allows rapid generation of mechanistic hypotheses for cognitive computations. RNNs further provide a natural way to flexibly combine bottom-up biological knowledge with top-down computational goals into network models. However, early works of this approach are faced with fundamental challenges. In this talk, Dr. Guangyu Robert Yang discusses some of these challenges, and several recent steps that we took to partly address them and to build next-generation RNN models for cognitive neuroscience.​

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.
