Basic knowledge and comfort with Command Line Interfaces (CLI) is highly beneficial for learning how to use countless neuroscience tools and acquiring programming skills. Furthermore, CLIs are better disposed to reproducibility, automation, concatenation in pipelines, execution on multiple platforms, and remote access.
Ross Markello takes you through this general introduction to the essentials of navigating through a Bash terminal environment. The lesson is based on the Software Carpentries "Introduction to the Shell" and was given in the context of the BrainHack School 2020.
Ross Markello provides an overview of Python applications to data analysis, demonstrating why it has become ubiquitous in data science and neuroscience.

Shawn Brown presents an overview of CBRAIN, a web-based platform that allows neuroscientists to perform computationally intensive data analyses by connecting them to high-performance-computing facilities across Canada and around the world.
This talk was given in the context of a Ludmer Centre event in 2019.
This lecture focuses on how the immune system can target and attack the nervous system to produce autoimmune responses that may result in diseases such as multiple sclerosis, neuromyelitis and lupus cerebritis manifested by motor, sensory, and cognitive impairments. Despite the fact that the brain is an immune-privileged site, autoreactive lymphocytes producing proinflammatory cytokines can cause active brain inflammation, leading to myelin and axonal loss.
This lecture will highlight our current understanding and recent developments in the field of neurodegenerative disease research, as well as the future of diagnostics and treatment of neurodegenerative diseases
This lecture provides an overview of depression (epidemiology and course of the disorder), clinical presentation, somatic co-morbidity, and treatment options.
How genetics can contribute to our understanding of psychiatric phenotypes.
