RIKEN Open Day at Wako campus was held on April 18,2015. Neuroinformatics Japan Center (NIJC) joined this event by introducing INCF Japan Node.  In addition, "Brain Mapping by Integrated Neurotechnologies for Disease Studies (Brain/MINDS) " was partially introduced by NIJC members who participate  to the project. Please click here the details.

Tadashi Yamazaki (NIJC, The University of Electro-Communications) and his colleagues reported a new computational model of cerebellovestibular learning PNAS. Their study demonstrated that the learning with synaptic plasticities in multiple locations can closely reproduce learning behavior of mice. The assumption of multiple synaptic plasticity is based on the experimental studies by M. Ito and S.Nagao at RIKEN.   The source code of the model is open in the cerebellar platform.

Hideki Oka Ph.D. Research Consultant, 
NIJC was attended 1st French Neuroinformatics Workshop.  Please refer the report below:


Report on 1st French Neuroinformatics Workshop, Paris:

I attended 1st French Neuroinformatics Workshop held in Paris which reports the activity about the neuroinformatics of the France. There is introduction of the analysis tools of the electrophysiology of brains, such as The Virtual Brain, Brian, and MNE, following introduction of the activity of INCF headquarters. Then, the report of database creation of Neuro-imaging under the national life science and the medical research league AVIESAN of France and introduction of the domestic infrastructure building were reported by each organization of Inria, CNRS, and NeuroSpin. Energetic activity of the France about neuroinformatics could be heard and it was a significant workshop.
