Workshop on "Computational Neuroscience in EBRAINS"

From : Thursday 10 June 2021 - 13:00

To     : Thursday 10 June 2021 - 19:00


Workshop on "Computational Neuroscience in EBRAINS".


Organized by Andrew Davison (CNRS), Viktor Jirsa (AMU) and Alain
Destexhe (CNRS)

Description of the workshop:

EBRAINS is a open-access platform built by the Human Brain Project and which provides tools for various applications in neuroscience. The aim of this workshop is to introduce some of the EBRAINS tools that are of particular interest for applications in computational neuroscience.  These tools provide help to simulate models, from the cellular to the whole-brain level.  Each tool will be introduced, then a "live demo" will be provided to demonstrate its use.

As a companion to this workshop, we plan to provide recordings of each session on a YouTube channel, as well as scripts that were used in for the live demos.
