In this talk, you will learn about the standardization schema for data formats among two of the US BRAIN Initiative networks: the Cell Census Network (BICCN) and the Cell Atlas Network (BICAN).
This lesson describes the current state of brain-computer interface (BCI) standards, including the present obstacles hindering the forward movement of BCI standardization as well as future steps aimed at solving this problem.
Brief introduction to Research Resource Identifiers (RRIDs), persistent and unique identifiers for referencing a research resource.
Research Resource Identifiers (RRIDs) are ID numbers assigned to help researchers cite key resources (e.g., antibodies, model organisms, and software projects) in biomedical literature to improve the transparency of research methods.
The Brain Imaging Data Structure (BIDS) is a standard prescribing a formal way to name and organize MRI data and metadata in a file system that simplifies communication and collaboration between users and enables easier data validation and software development through using consistent paths and naming for data files.
Neurodata Without Borders (NWB) is a data standard for neurophysiology that provides neuroscientists with a common standard to share, archive, use, and build common analysis tools for neurophysiology data.
The Neuroimaging Data Model (NIDM) is a collection of specification documents that define extensions the W3C PROV standard for the domain of human brain mapping. NIDM uses provenance information as means to link components from different stages of the scientific research process from dataset descriptors and computational workflow, to derived data and publication.
This lesson provides a brief introduction to the Neuroscience Information Exchange (NIX) Format data model, which allows storing fully annotated scientific datasets, i.e., data combined with rich metadata and their relations in a consistent, comprehensive format.
This lecture provides an overview of successful open-access projects aimed at describing complex neuroscientific models, and makes a case for expanded use of resources in support of reproducibility and validation of models against experimental data.
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 Neurodata Without Borders (NWB), an ecosystem for neurophysiology data standardization. The lecture also introduces some NWB-enabled tools.
This lesson outlines Neurodata Without Borders (NWB), a data standard for neurophysiology which provides neuroscientists with a common standard to share, archive, use, and build analysis tools for neurophysiology data.
This lecture covers the rationale for developing the DAQCORD, a framework for the design, documentation, and reporting of data curation methods in order to advance the scientific rigour, reproducibility, and analysis of data.
This tutorial demonstrates how to use PyNN, a simulator-independent language for building neuronal network models, in conjunction with the neuromorphic hardware system SpiNNaker.
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 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.
Maximize Your Research With Cloud Workspaces is a talk aimed at researchers who are looking for innovative ways to set up and execute their life science data analyses in a collaborative, extensible, open-source cloud environment. This panel discussion is brought to you by MetaCell and scientists from leading universities who share their experiences of advanced analysis and collaborative learning through the Cloud.
In this lecture, you will learn about virtual research environments (VREs) and their technical limitations, (i.e., a computing platform and the software stack behind it) and the security measures which should be considered during implementation.
