Brainhack Magdeburg 2022
A small group of scientists spontaneously got together to become part of Brainhack Global 2022 with a Local Brainhack Magdeburg. In cooperation with Peer Herholz from the Neuro (Montreal Neurological Institute-Hospital) at McGill and McGovern Institute for Brain Research at MIT, we developed a program to bring together animal and human researchers in order to foster research across species. National and international guests will give tutorials, surrounded by an open hacking session were everybody should bring their own data currently analyzing to get support from our helpdesk team around Alexander Weuthen.
13:00 Round Table: “Thinking about breaking cross-technique and cross-species boundaries in data analysis” with Janelle Pakan
14:00 Hands-on tutorial: “M/EEG and MRI analysis in Python using MNE and Nipype” with Malte Güth
15:00 Open Hacking with Peer Herholz and Alexander Weuthen (provide Helpdesk with Python packages) & Coffee Break
18:00 Unconference: “Sharing is Caring: Sneak Peek at the World of Open-source with GitHub” with Soumick Chatterjee
19:00 Get-together with Pizza
Hands-on tutorial: “M/EEG and MRI analysis in Python using MNE and Nipype” with Malte Güth (Center for Molecular and Behavioral Neuroscience, Rutgers University Newark, USA)
This tutorial will be an introductory overview of M/EEG and MRI analysis in Python. Both preprocessing and inferential statistics will be covered.
Open Hacking with Peer Herholz (The Neuro (Montreal Neurological Institute-Hospital) at McGill and McGovern Institute for Brain Research at MIT) and Alexander Weuthen (OVGU Magdeburg)
Free hacking on (your own) projects, get feedback and support regarding data/project management (BIDS, computational environments, BIDS-Apps, QC, version control, etc.) and various analyses (connectivity, uni-/multivariate statistics, machine learning, encoding, etc.). For that, every participant has to bring their own laptop.
Unconference: “Sharing is Caring: Sneak Peek at the World of Open-source with GitHub” with Soumick Chatterjee (Fondazione Human Technopole Milan, Italy and OVGU Magdeburg)
Open-source tools have the potential to simplify our research life and help us save ample amount of time – by not repeating things already done by others. On the other hand, we should also support the community by making our research open. When it comes to coding, we need the support of version controlling and open-source code sharing platform GitHub to achieve this goal. In my talk, I will be providing a gentle introduction to version controlling using GitHub – while also introducing some open-source tool for image analysis, machine learning (including deep learning).
