The need for reproducible research has become a topic of intense discussion in the neurosciences. Reproducibility is based on building workflows and traceable analysis steps. A key component of such a workflow is the availability of well-tested analysis methods for data processing. More: Elephant …

Analysis of parallel spike trains

Analysis of parallel spike trains

The brain is composed of billions of neurons, the elementary units of neuronal information processing. The neocortex, which is critical to most higher brain functions, is a highly complex network of neurons each of which receives signals from thousands of other neurons and projects its own spikes to thousands of other neurons.

In a joint activity with INCF and Radboud University, we a supporting to sustain the data base developed by Rolf Kötter. CoCoMac (Collations of Connectivity data on the Macaque brain) is an approach to produce a systematic record of the known wiring of the primate brain. More: CoCoMac …
