*The Virtual Brain (TVB) Node 5*
*2-day Training Workshop in Marseille, France, on May 15-16, 2017*

We would like to invite interested students and researchers to the 
upcoming *The Virtual Brain Node 5 *workshop, Marseille, France, 15th - 
16th May 2017.

The workshop is dedicated to a theoretical and hands-on understanding of 
large-scale brain network modeling using the open source 
neuroinformatics platform The Virtual Brain (TVB). For the first time 
this workshop will be held over 2 days and will go more in depth 
regarding the hands-on modeling sessions along explicit use cases from 
resting state studies and clinical applications to epilepsy and stroke. 
Also for the first time we will offer in-depth training of fitting 
virtual brain models to human imaging data.

The Virtual Brain simulation environment enables the biologically 
realistic modeling of network dynamics using connectome-based approaches 
across different brain scales. Personalized brain network models can be 
derived from an individual’s MRI data. Configurable brain network models 
generate macroscopic neuroimaging signals including functional MRI, 
intracranial and stereotactic EEG, surface EEG and MEG for single 
subjects. TVB researchers from different backgrounds can benefit from an 
integrative software platform including a supporting framework for data 
management (generation, organization, storage, integration and sharing) 
and a simulation core written in Python.

*Workshop format:* lectures and hands-on tutorials. Participants are 
encouraged to bring their own data to work on.

*Workshop program overview:*
*- Theoretical background of large scale brain network modeling
- Architecture of The Virtual Brain (TVB)
- Interacting with TVB using GUI and Python interface
- Preprocessing neuroimaging data, or how to obtain a TVB dataset
- Fitting the brain model parameters to the functional data
- Modeling resting state network dynamics in fMRI
- Modeling stroke and recovery
