Introduction to Scientific Computing and Matlab For Cognitive Neuroscientists
Below you will find the schedule of our “Introduction to Scientific Computing and Matlab” workshops, held in the CBSU West Wing Seminar Room on Wednesdays, 14.30, between October and December 2017.
Any larger data analysis at the CBU, especially for neuroimaging data, is performed on our highperformance computer cluster, using the operating system Linux. Some of our workshops will cover the basics of our computing system, good research practice in scientific computing, basic linux commands and an introduction to parallel computing.
Matlab is the Swiss Army Knife of data analysis: no matter whether you are analysing neuroimaging data, behavioural data or your latest bank statements, Matlab can make you do things you thought were never possible.Our Matlab workshops also serve as an introduction to scientific computing, which will be useful even if you are more likely to use R, Python etc. in your work.
Our workshops are aimed at researchers with no or little prior experience to programming (in Matlab or otherwise). We are not intending to provide a full Matlab or Linux course, but we hope we can significantly facilitate the first few steps. For other options, see e.g. opportunities at Cambridge University (http://training.cam.ac.uk/ucs/), or online tutorials (http://imaging.mrccbu.cam.ac.uk/meg/Beginners).
Individual sessions of this workshop series will be advertised via our "skillstraining" mailing list (see below). To hear more about skillsoriented training opportunities at the CBU, please register on this mailing list: http://lists.mrccbu.cam.ac.uk/mailman/listinfo/skillstraining (NonCBU people can subscribe by sending an email to skillstrainingsubscribe (at) mrccbu (dot) cam (dot) ac (dot) uk).
You may want to have a look at other skilloriented training options.
Any suggestions of feedback on our previous lectures would be very welcome.
All sessions will take place in the West Wing Seminar Room, on Wednesdays at 14.30. They will take about 2 hours, with an opportunity to practice and ask questions afterwards.
Note: The materials (PDFs etc.) attached to the schedule below are still from last year, and may change before or just after this year's workshops.
