[Comp-neuro] Virtual Training Webinar: Introduction to the Neuroscience Gateway Using NEURON and EEGLAB; November 20, 2020; 9:30 AM - 12:30 PM US Pacific Time

Majumdar, Amitava majumdar at sdsc.edu
Wed Nov 4 20:18:02 CET 2020


Date of Neuroscience Gateway training webinar: Friday, November 20, 2020

Time: 9:30 AM - 12:30 PM US Pacific Time


Registration is free (but total registration is limited): https://www.sdsc.edu/event_items/202011_NSGwebinar.html


The Neuroscience Gateway (NSG<https://www.nsgportal.org/index.html>) enables large scale modeling and data processing research in neuroscience. NSG provides easy to use web portal based and programmatic access to supercomputing and high throughput computing resources. NSG is free and open to researchers and students. NSG provides about 20 widely used neuroscience software<https://www.nsgportal.org/software.html> for modeling, simulation, data processing, data analysis and machine learning optimally installed on supercomputing and high throughput computing resources.


Neuroscientists who plan to use NSG for their research, irrespective of which of the NSG-provided neuroscience software they may use, will find this webinar useful.


This webinar will provide training on how to use the NSG and its various features within the context of two widely used neuroscience software for modeling and data processing - NEURON and EEGLAB. The NEURON<https://neuron.yale.edu/neuron/> simulation environment is used by researchers and students worldwide for building and using computational models of neurons and networks of neurons. EEGLAB<https://sccn.ucsd.edu/eeglab/index.php> is an interactive Matlab toolbox for processing continuous and event-related EEG, MEG and other electrophysiological data incorporating independent component analysis (ICA), time/frequency analysis, artifact rejection, event-related statistics. We will also talk about a new supercomputer called Expanse<https://www.sdsc.edu/services/hpc/expanse/> that is becoming available to NSG for running these software.

NSG is funded by the US National Science Foundation and National Institutes of Health.
