This tutorial provides instruction on how to simulate brain tumors with TVB (reproducing publication: Marinazzo et al. 2020 Neuroimage). This tutorial comprises a didactic video, jupyter notebooks, and full data set for the construction of virtual brains from patients and health controls.

Difficulty level: Intermediate
Duration: 10:01

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. 

Difficulty level: Intermediate
Duration: 1:28:14

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.

This lesson briefly goes over the outline of the Neuroscience for Machine Learners course. 

Difficulty level: Intermediate
Duration: 3:05
Speaker: : Dan Goodman

This lesson goes over the basic mechanisms of neural synapses, the space between neurons where signals may be transmitted. 

Difficulty level: Intermediate
Duration: 7:03
Speaker: : Marcus Ghosh

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. 

Difficulty level: Intermediate
Duration: 4:48
Speaker: : Marcus Ghosh

This lesson introduces some practical exercises which accompany the Synapses and Networks portion of this Neuroscience for Machine Learners course. 

Difficulty level: Intermediate
Duration: 3:51
Speaker: : Dan Goodman

As the previous lesson of this course described how researchers acquire neural data, this lesson will discuss how to go about interpreting and analysing the data. 

Difficulty level: Intermediate
Duration: 9:24
Speaker: : Marcus Ghosh

In this lesson you will learn about the motivation behind manipulating neural activity, and what forms that may take in various experimental designs. 

Difficulty level: Intermediate
Duration: 8:42
Speaker: : Marcus Ghosh

In this lesson, you will learn about one particular aspect of decision making: reaction times. In other words, how long does it take to take a decision based on a stream of information arriving continuously over time?

Difficulty level: Intermediate
Duration: 6:01
Speaker: : Dan Goodman

In this lesson, you will hear about some of the open issues in the field of neuroscience, as well as a discussion about whether neuroscience works, and how can we know?

Difficulty level: Intermediate
Duration: 6:54
Speaker: : Marcus Ghosh

This lesson discusses a gripping neuroscientific question: why have neurons developed the discrete action potential, or spike, as a principle method of communication?
