Deciphering the intimate structure of the brain is one of the grand challenge for Neuroscience.

Such endeavor can only be achieved with the development of software infrastructure to efficiently store, manipulate and analyze the large datasets generated by a wide variety of electrophysiological and imaging techniques currently available.

To this end we provide series of training activities.

Winter School Workshop on Computational Brain Connectivity Mapping

The CoBCoM Winter School Workshop, running from November 20 to 24, 2017 is targeted at graduate students, early career and senior researchers interested in structural and functional brain connectivities via multi imaging modalities including diffusion MRI, functional MRI, MEG, and EEG. Spanning five days, the workshop will begin with introductory talks and tutorials on structural and functional connectivity using… Read more »

Software Carpentry at SfN 2017
