This lesson describes the principles underlying functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI), tractography, and parcellation. These tools and concepts are explained in a broader context of neural connectivity and mental health.
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.
The tutorial on modelling strokes in TVB includes a didactic video and jupyter notebooks (reproducing publication: Falcon et al. 2016 eNeuro).
This lesson introduces population models and the phase plane, and is part of the The Virtual Brain (TVB) Node 10 Series, a 4-day workshop dedicated to learning about the full brain simulation platform TVB, as well as brain imaging, brain simulation, personalised brain models, and TVB use cases.
In this tutorial, you will learn how to run a typical TVB simulation.
This lesson introduces TVB-multi-scale extensions and other TVB tools which facilitate modeling and analyses of multi-scale data.
This tutorial introduces The Virtual Mouse Brain (TVMB), walking users through the necessary steps for performing simulation operations on animal brain data.
In this tutorial, you will learn the necessary steps in modeling the brain of one of the most commonly studied animals among non-human primates, the macaque.
This lecture delves into cortical (i.e., surface-based) brain simulations, as well as subcortical (i.e., deep brain) stimulations, covering the definitions, motivations, and implementations of both.
This lecture provides an introduction to entropy in general, and multi-scale entropy (MSE) in particular, highlighting the potential clinical applications of the latter.
This lecture gives an overview of how to prepare and preprocess neuroimaging (EEG/MEG) data for use in TVB.
In this lecture, you will learn about various neuroinformatic resources which allow for 3D reconstruction of brain models.
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.
The Medical Informatics Platform (MIP) is a platform providing federated analytics for diagnosis and research in clinical neuroscience research. The federated analytics is possible thanks to a distributed engine that executes computations and transfers information between the members of the federation (hospital nodes). In this talk the speaker will describe the process of designing and implementing new analytical tools, i.e. statistical and machine learning algorithms. Mr. Sakellariou will further describe the environment in which these federated algorithms run, the challenges and the available tools, the principles that guide its design and the followed general methodology for each new algorithm. One of the most important challenges which are faced is to design these tools in a way that does not compromise the privacy of the clinical data involved. The speaker will show how to address the main questions when designing such algorithms: how to decompose and distribute the computations and what kind of information to exchange between nodes, in order to comply with the privacy constraint mentioned above. Finally, also the subject of validating these federated algorithms will be briefly touched.
This is the first of two workshops on reproducibility in science, during which participants are introduced to concepts of FAIR and open science. After discussing the definition of and need for FAIR science, participants are walked through tutorials on installing and using Github and Docker, the powerful, open-source tools for versioning and publishing code and software, respectively.
This is a hands-on tutorial on PLINK, the open source whole genome association analysis toolset. The aims of this tutorial are to teach users how to perform basic quality control on genetic datasets, as well as to identify and understand GWAS summary statistics.
This is a tutorial on using the open-source software PRSice to calculate a set of polygenic risk scores (PRS) for a study sample. Users will also learn how to read PRS into R, visualize distributions, and perform basic association analyses.
