June 21st and 22nd: The BRAIN Initiative® Meeting convenes BRAIN Initiative awardees, staff, and leadership from the contributing federal agencies (NIH, NSF, DARPA, IARPA, and FDA), plus representatives and investigators from participating non-federal organizations, and members of the media, public, and Congress. The purpose of this open meeting is to continue to build the BRAIN community and provide a forum for discussing exciting scientific developments and potential new directions, and to identify areas for collaboration and research coordination.

Location: Allen Institute, University of Washington

By: Allen Institute

Co-hosted by Allen Institute for Neural Dynamics, Allen Institute MIndScope Program, and University of Washington. In this workshop, participants will gain in-depth exposure to the tools and techniques used by the Allen Institute to collect in vivo physiology data at scale. The Allen Institute was a key contributor to the development of Neuropixels probes (along with researchers and engineers at HHMI Janelia Research Campus, University College London, and Imec), which are quickly becoming the standard for extracellular electrophysiology recordings. The Institute has also pioneered rigs and protocols needed for high-throughput recordings from the mouse visual system, which are now accessible to the community via the BRAIN Initiative–funded OpenScope program. In this workshop, participants from around the world will have the opportunity to tour our in vivo electrophysiology and imaging facilities and learn the details of these methods from Allen Institute and UW scientists and staff. Lectures and demonstrations will cover all aspects of generating high-quality physiology datasets, from surgery to behavior training to neural recordings. Participants will also learn how to access data from the Allen Brain Observatory and about the OpenScope program. The workshop is geared towards graduate students, postdocs, staff scientists, and PIs with some experience with in vivo recordings. Applications are due June 1, 2022.
