Neuroimaging data requires both statistical and computational tools to be converted into neuroscience knowledge. These skills are much better acquired and solidified through practice. We call this process "brainhacking." Most of the brainhack training consists of working on a project openly and collaboratively.
The BrainHack School is organized at four different institutions (see below). The course will start on August 5th at 9 am, and will run from Monday to Friday until August 30th. The school will be open each day from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., with a lunch break from 12 am to 1 pm. Registration is free for participants enrolled in one of the four partner institutions, and 50 CAD otherwise.
Week 1: Neuro-Data Science Bootcamp at McGill University
Week 2: Project definition at Université de Montréal
Week 3: Visualization and communication at Polytechnique Montréal
Week 4: Project wrap-up at Concordia University
Please contact Claude Godbout for any questions.
Graduate students (Master and PhD) at the psychology department of Université de Montréal can register to brainhack school as a 3 credit course called PSY 6983 - Projet en sciences des données neuronales. Graduate students at École Polytechnique, Concordia University and McGill University can register to PSY 6983 through the Bureau de coopération inter-universitaire. Participants from outside of the partner institutions can register too. Computer Science students from Concordia University can also register through a COMP 490 or COMP 6971 project, following the usual procedure in their department. There is a limited number of seats and priority will be given to students who take the course for credit.
