I have joined the International Brain Laboratory, a virtual laboratory gathering 21 neuroscience teams around the world. Half of the researchers are experimentalists, collecting data in the same experimental conditions, while the other half are theoreticians, analyzing the data. I'm working on the data architecture group allowing experimenters to organize and store their data, and theoreticians to make detailed queries for their analysis.
I'm pleased to announce the release of the IPython Cookbook, Second Edition, more than three years after the first edition. All 100+ recipes have been updated to the latest versions of Python, IPython, Jupyter, and all of the scientific packages.
We're looking for an outstanding Python programmer to help us develop data sharing platforms and software for neuroscience data. This is a large collaboration between ~50 neuroscientists from 20 labs around the world.
We published a new paper in Nature Neuroscience about our spike sorting method. This paper is accompanied by an open source software suite named klusta, which includes automatic and manual programs for extracting spikes from large multielectrode recordings.
