TVB workshop

Get up to speed about the fundamental principles of full brain network modelling using the open-source neuroinformatics platform The Virtual Brain (TVB).


Date: 7-8 August

Location: Montréal Neurological Institute (MNI)

The Virtual Brain team is organizing a 2-day workshop at the MNI – make sure you register for both! Seats are limited. Registration is open now!

  • TVB enables biologically realistic modelling of network dynamics using Connectome-based approaches across different brain scales.
  • Generate macroscopic neuroimaging signals including fMRI, intracranial and stereotactic EEG, surface EEG and MEG for single subjects.
  • Personalized brain network models can be derived from an individual’s MRI data.

Researchers from different backgrounds can benefit from an integrative software platform including a supporting framework for data management (generation, organization, storage, integration and sharing) and a simulation core written in Python. Applications to use cases in the healthy and diseased brain are explicitly presented.

Simulated brains. Real memories.

After this workshop you should have a basic picture of how these models are built, how they work, and what biological properties of a neural system they represent. In addition, we will highlight several research topics that can be explored using this tool.

The workshop is organized with interleaved oral presentation and hands-on sessions. Attendants will have the time to ask questions. The hands-on sessions will let you immediately apply the concepts from the lectures to your simulations in TVB. Refreshments will be available during the breaks and lunch will be provided.

Apart from learning together, you can meet and talk to a good part of The Virtual Brain’s team, covering a broad range of topics from cutting-edge neuroscience research to advanced software development.
