This lecture presents the Medical Informatics Platform's data federation in epilepsy.

Difficulty level: Intermediate
Duration: 26:51
Speaker: : Pawel Swieboda

This lesson is a general overview of overarching concepts in neuroinformatics research, with a particular focus on clinical approaches to defining, measuring, studying, diagnosing, and treating various brain disorders. Also described are the complex, multi-level nature of brain disorders and the data associated with them, from genes and individual cells up to cortical microcircuits and whole-brain network dynamics. Given the heterogeneity of brain disorders and their underlying mechanisms, this lesson lays out a case for multiscale neuroscience data integration.

Speaker: : Sean Hill

The state of the field regarding the diagnosis and treatment of major depressive disorder (MDD) is discussed. Current challenges and opportunities facing the research and clinical communities are outlined, including appropriate quantitative and qualitative analyses of the heterogeneity of biological, social, and psychiatric factors which may contribute to MDD.

Difficulty level: Beginner
Duration: 1:29:28

This lesson continues with the second workshop on reproducible science, focusing on additional open source tools for researchers and data scientists, such as the R programming language for data science, as well as associated tools like RStudio and R Markdown. Additionally, users are introduced to Python and iPython notebooks, Google Colab, and are given hands-on tutorials on how to create a Binder environment, as well as various containers in Docker and Singularity.

Difficulty level: Beginner
Duration: 1:16:04

This lesson delves into the opportunities and challenges of telepsychiatry. While novel digital approaches to clinical research and care have the potential to improve and accelerate patient outcomes, researchers and care providers must consider new population factors, such as digital disparity. 

Difficulty level: Beginner
Duration: 1:20:28
Speaker: : Abhi Pratap

This is a tutorial introducing participants to the basics of RNA-sequencing data and how to analyze its features using Seurat. 

Difficulty level: Intermediate
Duration: 1:19:17
Speaker: : Sonny Chen

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

In this tutorial on simulating whole-brain activity using Python, participants can follow along using corresponding code and repositories, learning the basics of neural oscillatory dynamics, evoked responses and EEG signals, ultimately leading to the design of a network model of whole-brain anatomical connectivity. 

Difficulty level: Intermediate
Duration: 1:16:10
Speaker: : John Griffiths

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. 

Difficulty level: Intermediate
Duration: 1:15:04
Speaker: : Daniel Hauke

This lecture provides an introduction to Plato’s concept of rationality and Aristotle’s concept of empiricism, and the enduring discussion between rationalism and empiricism to this day.

Difficulty level: Beginner
Duration: 1:13:45

This lecture goes into further detail about the hard problem of developing a scientific discipline for subjective consciousness.

Difficulty level: Beginner
Duration: 58:03

This lecture covers a lot of post-war developments in the science of the mind, focusing first on the cognitive revolution, and concluding with living machines.

Difficulty level: Beginner
Duration: 2:24:35

In this lesson, you will learn about data management within the Open Data Commons (ODC) framework, and in particular, how Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) data is stored, shared, and published. You will also hear about Frictionless Data, an open-source toolkit aimed at simplifying the data experience. 

Difficulty level: Beginner
Duration: 19:10

This lesson provides an introduction the International Neuroinformatics Coordinating Facility (INCF), its mission towards FAIR neuroscience, and future directions. 

Difficulty level: Beginner
Duration: 20:29
Speaker: : Maryann Martone

This talk describes the NIH-funded SPARC Data Structure, and how this project navigates ontology development while keeping in mind the FAIR science principles. 

Difficulty level: Beginner
Duration: 25:44
Speaker: : Fahim Imam

This video gives a brief introduction to the second session of talks from INCF's Neuroinformatics Assembly 2023. 

Difficulty level: Beginner
Duration: 3:55
Speaker: : Trygve Leergard

This talk enumerates the challenges regarding data accessibility and reusability inherent in the current scientific publication system, and discusses novel approaches to these challenges, such as the EBRAINS Live Papers platform. 

Difficulty level: Beginner
Duration: 18:08
Speaker: : Andrew Davison

This talk describes the challenges to sustained operability and success of consortia, why many of these groups flounder after just a few years, and what steps can be taken to mitigate such outcomes. 

Difficulty level: Beginner
