Past Activities

Mar 6, 2019 - Mar 8, 2019

Neuro Reproducibility Hackashop

Johns Hopkins University
Baltimore, MD

The hackashop will focus on emerging tools for collaborative neuroimaging research, with a focus on "hybrid" or "core" open source models that can support sustainable development. Topics will include data management, pipelines, reproducible environments, and easier access to cloud and owned compute resources.

Feb 25, 2019 - Feb 27, 2019

Nemonic Multiphoton Imaging Workshop

Santa Barbara, California

Multiphoton excitation is a key technology in neuroscience for imaging and photostimulation. New tools and techniques are constantly being developed, enabling new and better neuroscience experiments. This workshop will provide instruction and hands-on training for advanced techniques in multiphoton imaging. The workshop is hosted by SLAB (slslab.org), a neuroscience and neuroengineering lab located at The University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB). Funding is provided by the NSF NeuroNex program.

Learn more about the workshop.

Present and Future Frameworks of Theoretical Neuroscience

Emily Morgan Hotel
San Antonia, Texas

The BRAIN initiative will result in the generation of tools to collect enormous amounts of data. To make sense of it all it is necessary to develop theories that will integrate results across scales. The goal of this meeting is to determine the present theoretical framework in neuroscience, identify challenges, and define strategies to tackle future problems in the field.
