CRCNS.ORG: NEW DATASHARING WEBSITE FOR COMPUTATIONAL NEUROSCIENCE
The new website
is available for sharing resources for computational neuroscience,
such as high-quality experimental data sets, analytical tools and
models. Currently, the website hosts resources whose preparation have
been supported by a new funding track in the joint NSF/NIH program
Collaborative Research in Computational Neuroscience.
The resources currently available are electrophysiology data from
hippocampus, visual and auditory cortices, avian auditory structures,
as well as recordings of human eye movements during movie watching.
Each resource is documented by a summary page and more detailed
documentation written by the resource contributor. Individual
discussion forums for each resource enable the interaction and
collaboration between people interested in a particular data set.
Every CRCNS funding cycle new resources will be added.
The history, motives and goals of this data sharing initiative are
described in the article: "Data sharing for computational
neuroscience" by J. L. Teeters, K. D. Harris, K. J. Millman, B. A.
Olshausen, and F. T. Sommer (Neuroinformatics, 2008)
The website has been built and is maintained by the Sommer lab in the
Redwood Center for Theoretical Neuroscience at UC Berkeley. Funding
for this effort is provided by the NSF. Any feedback or suggestions
on how to improve this website is gladly appreciated.
