This lecture covers infrared LED oblique illumination for studying neuronal circuits in in vitro block-preparations of the spinal cord and brain stem.
This lecture covers the application of diffusion MRI for clinical and preclinical studies.
This lecture covers an introduction to connectomics, and image processing tools for the study of connectomics.
This lecture covers acquisition techniques, the physics of MRI, diffusion imaging, prediction using fMRI.
Optical imaging offers a look inside the working brain. This lecture takes a look at orientation and ocular dominance columns in the visual cortex, and shows how they can be viewed with calcium imaging.
Functional imaging has led to the discovery of a plethora of visual cortical regions. This lecture introduces functional imaging techniques and their teachings about the visual cortex.
The Brain Imaging Data Structure (BIDS) is a standard prescribing a formal way to name and organize MRI data and metadata in a file system that simplifies communication and collaboration between users and enables easier data validation and software development through using consistent paths and naming for data files.
The Neuroimaging Data Model (NIDM) is a collection of specification documents that define extensions the W3C PROV standard for the domain of human brain mapping. NIDM uses provenance information as means to link components from different stages of the scientific research process from dataset descriptors and computational workflow, to derived data and publication.
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
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.

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.
Since their introduction in 2016, the FAIR data principles have gained increasing recognition and adoption in global neuroscience. FAIR defines a set of high-level principles and practices for making digital objects, including data, software, and workflows, Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable. But FAIR is not a specification; it leaves many of the specifics up to individual scientific disciplines to define. INCF has been leading the way in promoting, defining, and implementing FAIR data practices for neuroscience. We have been bringing together researchers, infrastructure providers, industry, and publishers through our programs and networks. In this session, we will hear some perspectives on FAIR neuroscience from some of these stakeholders who have been working to develop and use FAIR tools for neuroscience. We will engage in a discussion on questions such as: how is neuroscience doing with respect to FAIR? What have been the successes? What is currently very difficult? Where does neuroscience need to go? This lecture covers the needs and challenges involved in creating a FAIR ecosystem for neuroimaging research.
