Requests of female researchers will be appreciated and favored.
In recent years it has become clear that the rapid technological, methodological and theoretical advances in neuroscience pose a challenge for scientific reproducibility. The degree of complexity when working with data from electrophysiological experiments has reached a level where workflows for data and metadata acquisition, pre-processing, and subsequent analysis must be carefully planned, well structured, and their execution carefully tracked. Recent years have seen the development of tools to support such workflows, yet an active community, a vibrant exchange of ideas and hands-on training is required to bring these tools into laboratories while at the same time improving the tools through a process of co-design.

your interest in the course
the type of analysis work on electrophysiological data you are interested in (which type of data/experiment? which types of analysis?)
whether you would be willing to bring and share an example data set for analysis in the second part of the course, or have a publically available dataset in mind. If so, which type of data, and which data format is the data in?

ABOUT THE VENUE
The Paris-Saclay Institute of Neuroscience
CNRS building 32
1 avenue de la Terrasse
91198 Gif-Sur-Yvette, France
The Paris-Saclay Institute of Neuroscience (Neuro-PSI) is dedicated to basic Neuroscience, at all scales of analysis, from molecule to cognition and from embryo to adult.
It is a joint Research Unit of the CNRS and Paris-Sud University (UMR9197), currently located in Gif-sur-Yvette and Orsay, 25km South to Paris.
It forms, with its sister Institute NeuroSpin (CEA Saclay), the NeuroSaclay Center promoting Neuroscience at the highest international standards within the Paris-Saclay University.
