This course is intended to introduce researchers to the Open Science Framework (OSF). OSF is a free, open source web application built by the Center for Open Science, a non-profit dedicated to improving the alignment between scientific values and scientific practices. OSF is part collaboration tool, part version control software, and part data archive.
In this short course, you will learn about Jupyter Notebooks, an open-source web application that allows you to create and share documents that contain live code, equations, visualizations and narrative text. Uses include: data cleaning and transformation, numerical simulation, statistical modeling, data visualization, machine learning, and much more.
This course consists of brief tutorials on OpenNeuro.org, a free and open platform for analyzing and sharing neuroimaging data. During this course, you will learn how to deal with your neuroscientific datasets using OpenNeuro.org for operations such as uploading and version control, as well as how to analyze and share your data.
This course features tutorials on how to use Allen atlases and digital brain atlasing tools, including operational and user features of the Allen Mouse Brain Atlas, as well as the Allen Institute's 3D viewing tool, Brain Explorer®.
Get up to speed about the fundamental principles of full brain network modeling using the open-source neuroinformatics platform The Virtual Brain (TVB). This simulation environment enables the biologically realistic modeling of whole-brain network dynamics across different brain scales, using personalized structural connectome-based approach.
In this short series of lectures, participants will take a look at articles using TVB in a clinical context. Specifically, participants will see how TVB can help to predict recovery after stroke and how individual epileptic seizures are simulated. The course lecturers will briefly describe the methods used and results achieved in the articles.
The Virtual Brain EduPack provides didactic use cases for The Virtual Brain (TVB). Typically a use case consists of a jupyter notebook and a didactic video. EduPack use cases help the user to reproduce TVB-based publications or to get started quickly with TVB.
Presented by the Neuroscience Information Framework (NIF), this series consists of several lectures characterizing cutting-edge, open-source software platforms and computational tools for neuroscientists. This course offers detailed descriptions of various neuroinformatic resources such as cloud-computing services, web-based annotation tools, genome browsers, and platforms for designing and building biophysically detailed models of neurons and neural ensembles.
EEGLAB is an interactive MATLAB toolbox for processing continuous and event-related EEG, MEG, and other electrophysiological data. In this course, you will learn about features incorporated into EEGLAB, including independent component analysis (ICA), time/frequency analysis, artifact rejection, event-related statistics, and several useful modes of visualization of the averaged and single-trial data. EEGLAB runs under Linux, Unix, Windows, and Mac OS X.

The UCSC Genome Browser is an online and downloadable genome browser hosted by the University of California, Santa Cruz (UCSC). It is an interactive website offering access to genome sequence data from a variety of vertebrate and invertebrate species and major model organisms, integrated with a large collection of aligned annotations.
This workshop provides basic knowledge on personalized brain network modeling using the open-source simulation platform The Virtual Brain (TVB). Participants will gain theoretical knowledge and apply this knowledge to construct brain models, process multimodal neuroimaging data for reconstructing individual brains, run simulations, and use supporting neuroinformatics tools such as collaboratories, pipelines, workflows, and data repositories.
A number of programming languages are ubiquitous in modern neuroscience and are key to the competence, freedom, and creativity necessary in neuroscience research. This course offers lectures on the fundamentals of data science and specific neuroinformatic tools used in the investigation of brain data. Attendees of this course will be learn about the programming languages Python, R, and MATLAB, as well as their associated packages and software environments.
Notebook systems are proving invaluable to skill acquisition, research documentation, publication, and reproducibility. This series of presentations introduces the most popular platform for computational notebooks, Project Jupyter, as well as other resources like Binder and NeuroLibre.
This course outlines how versioning code, data, and analysis software is crucially important to rigorous and open neuroscience workflows that maximize reproducibility and minimize errors.Version control systems, code-capable notebooks, and virtualization containers such as Git, Jupyter, and Docker, respectively, have become essential tools in data science.
The dimensionality and size of datasets in many fields of neuroscience research require massively parallel computing power. Fortunately, the maturity and accessibility of virtualization technologies has made it feasible to run the same analysis environments on platforms ranging from single laptop computers up to high-performance computing networks.
This working group is a collaboration between OCNS and INCF. The group focuses on evaluating and testing computational neuroscience tools; finding them, testing them, learning how they work, and informing developers of issues to ensure that these tools remain in good shape by having communities looking after them. Since many members of the WG are themselves tool developers, we will also learn from each other and will work towards improving interoperability between related tools.
A virtual workshop with lectures and hands-on tutorials that will teach participants how to use open-source Miniscopes for in vivo calcium imaging. This workshop is designed to introduce all aspects of using Miniscopes, including basic principles of Miniscope design and imaging, how to build and attach a Miniscope, how to implant a GRIN lens for imaging deep structures, and how to analyze imaging data.
