The BRAIN Initiative® Conference, previously known as the BRAIN Initiative Meeting, convenes BRAIN Initiative awardees, staff, and leadership from the contributing federal agencies: National Institutes of Health (NIH), National Science Foundation (NSF), Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity (IARPA), and U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA). Additional participants include representatives and investigators from participating non-federal organizations, media, the public, and Congress members. This open hybrid meeting aims to continue building the BRAIN community, provide a forum for discussing exciting scientific developments and potential new directions, and identify areas for collaboration and research coordination.

The DANDI Archive now has 199+ neurophysiology datasets in the Neurodata Without Borders format spanning many species, brain areas, task types, and imaging modalities. These include high-value datasets, e.g. from Allen Institute OpenScope, the MICrONS project, and the International Brain Laboratory Brain Wide Map, as well as diverse contributions from neuroscience labs around the world. In this event, we organize a virtual poster session in the Gather platform to bring together data contributors and anyone interested in reusing existing neurophysiology data. This virtual event offers a unique opportunity for participants to engage in discussions, explore dandisets, and allows data contributors to showcase their projects.

The DANDI Archive now has 199+ neurophysiology datasets in the Neurodata Without Borders format spanning many species, brain areas, task types, and imaging modalities. These include high-value datasets, e.g. from Allen Institute OpenScope, the MICrONS project, and the International Brain Laboratory Brain Wide Map, as well as diverse contributions from neuroscience labs around the world. In this workshop, we will teach attendees about the open neurophysiology datasets available on the DANDI Archive and train them on how to maximally utilize the archive and the NWB standard to incorporate existing data into their scientific workflows. Feedback from attendees will be used to improve the software and data standard to better enable reanalysis workflows. Prior to the workshop, we are organizing Open Neurodata Showcase where attendees can meet the contributors behind the neurophysiology datasets and explore virtual posters. Visit the event page to sign up and read more about this feature event. Example projects include but are not limited to: Determine whether your result is present in another species or brain area. Showcase the capabilities of your tool or analysis on existing data from another lab. Explore follow-up questions to a study. Create educational content that uses open data. This event will primarily focus on analyzing existing data in NWB and on DANDI, not converting data to NWB. If you are interested in learning how to convert data, consider signing up for an NWB User Days event.
