About Japan Node
The Japan Node of the INCF coordinates
neuroinformatics activities within Japan and represents Japanese efforts in INCF. INCF expects each national node to:
- Actively formulate and implement the INCF Work Programs,
- Coordinate and facilitate local neuroinformatics research activities at the national level.
- Encourage neuroinformatics data sharing that conforms with INCF standards, and
- Promote neuroinformatics development that supports the goals of INCF.
The Neuroinformatics Japan Center (NIJC) represents the Japan Node. Together with the Japan Node Committee and the Platform Subcommittees, we promotes domestic activities of neuroinformatics. Platform Subcommittee members collaborate to develop databases that are available for use on the website.
The activities of the Japan Node
- Shaping domestic neuroinformatics research and directions (Japan Node Committee)
- Advising on Intellectual Property Rights and protecting experimental subjects (Japan Node Committee)
- Developing and publishing brain science databases (Platform Subcommittee)
- Coordinating database management (Platform Subcommittee)
- Disseminating neuroinformatics information via the web portal
- Developing the infrastructure for brain science information and neuroinformatics
- Supporting the development and diffusion of neuroinformatics technology
