Autopilot

Autopilot

Autopilot is a Python framework for performing complex, hardware-intensive behavioral experiments with swarms of networked Raspberry Pis. As a tool, it provides researchers with a toolkit of flexible modules to design experiments without rigid programming & API limitations.

BioAmp EXG Pill

BioAmp EXG Pill

BioAmp EXG Pill is a small, powerful Analog Front End (AFE) biopotential signal acquisition board that can be paired with any 5 V Micro Controller Unit (MCU) with an ADC. It is capable of recording publication-quality biopotential signals like ECG, EMG, EOG, and EEG, without the inclusion of any dedicated hardware or software filters.

Neuroimaging researchers require a diverse collection of bespoke command-line and graphical tools to analyse data and answer research questions. Installing and maintaining a neuroimaging software setup is challenging and often results in un-reproducible environments.

OpenSpritzer

OpenSpritzer

Designed for ease of use, robustness and low-cost, the β€œOpenspritzer” is an open hardware β€œPicospritzer” as routinely used in biological labs around the world. The performance of Openspritzer and commercial alternatives is effectively indistinguishable.

Spikeling

Spikeling

Understanding of how neurons encode and compute information is fundamental to our study of the brain, but opportunities for hands-on experience with neurophysiological techniques on live neurons are scarce in science education.

Clinica

Clinica

Clinica is a software platform for clinical research studies involving patients with neurological and psychiatric diseases and the acquisition of multimodal data (neuroimaging, clinical and cognitive evaluations, genetics…), most often with longitudinal follow-up.

Load confound

Load confound

Load a sensible subset of the fMRI confounds generated with fMRIprep in python (Esteban et al., 2018). The predefined denoising strategies are all adapted from Ciric et al. 2017. Check the docstring of each strategy for more info and a list of parameters.

Mobilefuge: Low-cost, Open-source 3D-printed centrifuge

Mobilefuge: Low-cost, Open-source 3D-printed centrifuge

We made a low-cost centrifuge that can be useful for carrying out low-cost LAMP based detection of SARS-Cov2 virus in saliva. The 3D printed centrifuge (Mobilefuge) is portable, robust, stable, safe, easy to build and operate.

The Virtual Macaque Brain

The Virtual Macaque Brain

A whole-cortex macaque structural connectome constructed from a combination of axonal tract-tracing and diffusion-weighted imaging data. Created for modeling brain dynamics using TheVirtualBrain (thevirtualbrain.org) platform. A detailed description and example usage can be found in the paper here: https://www.
