Neuroscience Gateway Using NEURON and EEGLAB Webinar

Friday, November 20, 2020

9:30 AM - 12:30 PM PST

This event will be held remotely.

The webinar has reached capacity and we are not able to accommodate further. Please know that the webinar will be recorded, so you will be able to view it when to becomes available. We also plan to do similar NSG training webinar for interested neuroscientists in the future.

If you have any further questions, please contact nsghelp@sdsc.edu.

The Neuroscience Gateway (NSG) 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. It eliminates or reduces technical and administrative barriers to use large computing resources for neuroscience research. NSG provides about 20 widely used neuroscience software for modeling, simulation, data processing, data analysis and machine learning optimally installed on computing resources.

This workshop 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 simulation environment is used by researchers and students worldwide for building and using computational models of neurons and networks of neurons. EEGLAB 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 briefly talk about a new supercomputer called Expanse that is becoming available to NSG in the near future for running these software.

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