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.

Difficulty level: Intermediate
Duration: 1:20:58

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 continuation of the talk on the cellular mechanisms of neuronal communication, this time at the level of brain microcircuits and associated global signals like those measureable by electroencephalography (EEG). This lecture also discusses EEG biomarkers in mental health disorders, and how those cortical signatures may be simulated digitally.

Difficulty level: Intermediate
Duration: 1:11:04
Speaker: : Etay Hay

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. 

Difficulty level: Intermediate
Duration: 1:47:22

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. 

Difficulty level: Intermediate
Duration: 1:39:04

In this lecture, you will learn about current methods, approaches, and challenges to studying human neuroanatomy, particularly through the lense of neuroimaging data such as fMRI and diffusion tensor imaging (DTI). 

Difficulty level: Intermediate
Duration: 1:35:14
Speaker: : Matt Glasser

This lesson provides an overview of the current status in the field of neuroscientific ontologies, presenting examples of data organization and standards, particularly from neuroimaging and electrophysiology. 

Difficulty level: Intermediate
Duration: 33:41

In this final lecture of the INCF Short Course: Introduction to Neuroinformatics, you will hear about new advances in the application of machine learning methods to clinical neuroscience data. In particular, this talk discusses the performance of SynthSeg, an image segmentation tool for automated analysis of highly heterogeneous brain MRI clinical scans.

Difficulty level: Intermediate
Duration: 1:32:01

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

Difficulty level: Intermediate
