This tutorial introduces pipelines and methods to compute brain connectomes from fMRI data. With corresponding code and repositories, participants can follow along and learn how to programmatically preprocess, curate, and analyze functional and structural brain data to produce connectivity matrices.
This lesson breaks down the principles of Bayesian inference and how it relates to cognitive processes and functions like learning and perception. It is then explained how cognitive models can be built using Bayesian statistics in order to investigate how our brains interface with their environment.
This lesson corresponds to slides 1-64 in the PDF below.
This is a tutorial on designing a Bayesian inference model to map belief trajectories, with emphasis on gaining familiarity with Hierarchical Gaussian Filters (HGFs).
This lesson corresponds to slides 65-90 of the PDF below.
While the previous lesson in the Neuro4ML course dealt with the mechanisms involved in individual synapses, this lesson discusses how synapses and their neurons' firing patterns may change over time.
In this lesson, you will learn in more detail about neuromorphic computing, that is, non-standard computational architectures that mimic some aspect of the way the brain works.
This lesson discusses a gripping neuroscientific question: why have neurons developed the discrete action potential, or spike, as a principle method of communication?
This lecture provides an introduction to the Brain Imaging Data Structure (BIDS), a standard for organizing human neuroimaging datasets.
This lesson provides an overview of Jupyter notebooks, Jupyter lab, and Binder, as well as their applications within the field of neuroimaging, particularly when it comes to the writing phase of your research.
In this lesson, you will learn about the Python project Nipype, an open-source, community-developed initiative under the umbrella of NiPy. Nipype provides a uniform interface to existing neuroimaging software and facilitates interaction between these packages within a single workflow.
This lecture introduces you to the basics of the Amazon Web Services public cloud. It covers the fundamentals of cloud computing and goes through both the motivations and processes involved in moving your research computing to the cloud.
This lesson gives an overview of the Brainstorm package for analyzing extracellular electrophysiology, including preprocessing, spike sorting, trial alignment, and spectrotemporal decomposition.
This lesson provides an overview of the CaImAn package, as well as a demonstration of usage with NWB.
This lesson gives an overview of the SpikeInterface package, including demonstration of data loading, preprocessing, spike sorting, and comparison of spike sorters.
In this lesson, users will learn about the NWBWidgets package, including coverage of different data types, and information for building custom widgets within this framework.
