Game theory or the study of strategic decision making has been used to study and explain a wide variety of human and animal behaviors. One such game is the Ultimatum Game in which two players interact to decide how to divide a sum of money that is given to them. Most attempts to...
In collaboration with Siemens MR, we are developing a tool for “inline” monitoring of fMRI quality which will provide on-scanner feedback for typical artifacts encountered in an fMRI run (e.g. motion, ghosting). These results may quickly inform the operator whether a...
During Montreal Brainhack EDT some of the Diffusion Imaging in Python (Dipy) developers (Eleftherios, Marc-Alex and Etienne) will be available to help people learn how to analyze diffusion MRI data with the latest state-of-the-art methods available in Dipy! So, bring your datasets!
Additionally, for people who already know how to code in Python we will work during the Hackathon to extend the segmentation and visualization capabilities of Dipy. Other ideas are welcome too. Join us and share your code and ideas!

Multimodal structural MRI analysis
Advances in MRI scans for human research have made it possible to collect a variety of scan sequences for a single subject within a single session (e.g. VBM, DWI, magnetization transfer). Currently, these are analyzed separately and conclusions are drawn by ’eye-balling’ apparent relationships, for example that an area of thicker cortex overlies white matter with increased myelination.
Labs are working on ways to integrate these data, but existing methods work best on very large datasets of thousands of participants. Most experimental researchers in cognitive neuroscience have group sizes...
The Spinal Cord Toolbox (SCT) is a comprehensive software enabling the registration of patient’s MR images on a generic template and the extraction of multi-parametric MR data in individual spinal cord tracts (http://sourceforge.net/projects/spinalcordtoolbox/). Currently, the...

http://utopiadocs.com develop a PDF viewer particularly tuned for scientists. Among a variety of features there is a possibility to extend it with annotations from different sources. In my case I would like to create a plugin to annotate with information from neurosynth.

Identify ≥85% reliable predictors of outcome for rTMS in depression, using resting-state fMRI
Thanks to more than 25 years of neuroimaging studies, we now have detailed information about what major depression looks like in the brain – at least, at the group level…
Our patients present themselves for treatment as individuals, not groups! And as of 2014, we still don’t have any reliable way of using neuroimaging to help us select the right treatment for each individual patient in the clinic.
Enter machine learning. Over the last few years, automated classification algorithms have made substantial...
Brainhack is a unique conference that convenes researchers from across the globe and a myriad of disciplines to work together on innovative projects related to neuroscience. Year after year, global Brainhack events have brought together researchers to participate in open collaboration, and now...
