Brief introduction to Research Resource Identifiers (RRIDs), persistent and unique identifiers for referencing a research resource.
Research Resource Identifiers (RRIDs) are ID numbers assigned to help researchers cite key resources (antibodies, model organisms and software projects) in the biomedical literature to improve transparency of research methods.
Computational models provide a framework for integrating data across spatial scales and for exploring hypotheses about the biological mechanisms underlying neuronal and network dynamics. However, as models increase in complexity, additional barriers emerge to the creation, exchange, and re-use of models. Successful projects have created standards for describing complex models in neuroscience and provide open source tools to address these issues. This lecture provides an overview of these projects and make a case for expanded use of resources in support of reproducibility and validation of models against experimental data.
NWB: An ecosystem for neurophysiology data standardization
Lecture on functional brain parcellations and a set of tutorials on bootstrap agregation of stable clusters (BASC) for fMRI brain parcellation which were part of the 2019 Neurohackademy, a 2-week hands-on summer institute in neuroimaging and data science held at the University of Washington eScience Institute.
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.
Longitudinal Online Research and Imaging System (LORIS) is a web-based data and project management software for neuroimaging research studies. It is an open source framework for storing and processing behavioural, clinical, neuroimaging and genetic data. LORIS also makes it easy to manage large datasets acquired over time in a longitudinal study, or at different locations in a large multi-site study.
This talk highlights a set of platform technologies, software, and data collections that close and shorten the feedback cycle in research.
An agent for reproducible neuroimaging
This lecture was part of the 2019 Neurohackademy, a 2-week hands-on summer institute in neuroimaging and data science held at the University of Washington eScience Institute.
Fibr is an app for quality control of diffusion MRI images from the Healthy Brain Network, a landmark mental health study that is collecting MRI images and other assessment data from 10,000 New York City area children. The purpose of the app is to train a computer algorithm to analyze the Healthy Brain Network dataset. By playing fibr, you are helping to teach the computer which images have sufficiently good quality and which images do not.
This lecture provides guidance on the ethical considerations the clinical neuroimaging community faces when applying the FAIR principles to their research. This lecture was part of the FAIR approaches for neuroimaging research session at the 2020 INCF Assembly.
This lecture covers the ethical implications of the use of functional neuroimaging to assess covert awareness in unconscious patients and was part of the Neuro Day Workshop held by the NeuroSchool of Aix Marseille University.
This module covers many of the types of non-invasive neurotech and neuroimaging devices including Electroencephalography (EEG), Electromyography (EMG), Electroneurography (ENG), Magnetoencephalography (MEG), functional Near-Infrared Spectroscopy (fNRIs), Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), Positron Emission Tomography (PET), and Computed Tomography
Serving as good refresher, Shawn Grooms explains the maths and logic concepts that are important for programmers to understand, including sets, propositional logic, conditional statements, and more.

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.

This lecture provides an overview of depression (epidemiology and course of the disorder), clinical presentation, somatic co-morbidity, and treatment options.
