24 Apr Thanks to all who attended a very successful INCF Nodes workshop in Warsaw! More photos at https://t.co/1q78NfvNec http://t.co/SVLDO2EBH8 Follow usView all highlights
We would like to welcome our newest member country, Malaysia, to INCF! The Malaysian Node is based at the Centre for Intelligent Signal and Imaging Research (CISIR), Universiti Teknologi Petronas (UTP), and activities will initially focus on community building and starting collaborations within clinical neuroscience.
The NeuroElectro project aims to extract information about the electrophysiological properties of neurons reported in research papers and place them into a publicly available database that links specific neuron types to measurements of their biophysical properties, with associated metadata, across the literature. The project leads have now published a paper in the Journal of Neurophysiology where they use NeuroElectro data to compare brain-wide neurophysiological diversity of mammalian neurons, including corrections for variability caused by different experimental conditions.
BigNeuron is a community effort to define and advance the state of the art of single neuron reconstruction and analysis and create a common platform for analyzing 3D neuronal structure, led by Allen Institute for Brain Science and uniting some of the leading research and computing centers around the world, including INCF. The results will include a large set of open-source, community-based tools for neuroscience studies, standardized protocols, and a rich library of morphological feature definitions and algorithms.
INCF SUPPORTING PARTNERS
INCF receives contributions from our member countries, based on gross domestic expenditures on research and development.
Karolinska Institutet and the Royal Institute of Technology are the host institutions of INCF. Further support is also received from the Swedish Research Council,
