One of core activities of INCF is to promote metadata standards for sharing research data in neuroscience. odML and NIX are metadata schema and tool for data sharing in neurophysiology, which has been developed as INCF program mainly contributed by G-Node. Those have been extensively applied to human EEG data by Czech Node. In Sep. - Oct., 2017, J-Node had opportunity to join these activities as lectures, hackathon and short course. Participants finally found their strength in neuroscience data in general. Here this article provides the related information and reports by participants of the events.
Japanese Neural Netwrk Society has released the award list in FY 2017. To our happiness, a number of J-Node members are included in the list as follows.
On RIKEN Open Day, April 22, 2017, Neuroinformatics Japan Center demonstrated a hands-on event, " Find your subjective color by spinning a top". Materials related to the demonstration has been released at Tutorial Content page of this portal. It includes questionnaire, summary on the individual difference of subjective color seeing, how to make a top and a review article on the subjective color.
ViBrism Database (DB), a platform of the J-node, has been renewed. ViBrism DB is a database for gene expression distribution maps underlying brain structures and functions: the comprehensive 3 dimensional (3D) maps were created with Transcriptome Tomography. The DB now contains 36,558 3D maps of the adult mouse brain and 135,464 maps in total of 3 maturation stages (3 and 7 days, and 3 weeks after the birth).
