Funding for Neuromatch Academy 2022

Hey @neuromatch academy applicants, remember that there’s a small funding available for the female ‘accepted’ 2022 students who can’t pay the tuition for the computational neuroscience summer program.

Email a letter as your funding-application to:

The letter of funding-application is a 1-2 pager with the following information:

  1. Legal name
  2. Country of birth
  3. Country of citizenship+home residential address
  4. Why did you apply to the @neuromatch academy 2022 Computational Neuroscience program?g
  5. Why do you believe you should receive the funding?
  6. A copy of your acceptance letter to the Neuromatch Academy 2022

EEG data available for free!

New YouTube up: How to access free EEG data, if you are new to neuroimaging and have no access to raw data. Here are a few available through UCSD, Harvard, dataset search engine, etc.

Neuromatch Academy 2022: Giving back to a community of aspiring scholars

A conversation with the brilliant Dr. Peters on computational neuroscince, philosophy, Neuromatch Academy, and much more.

Also, a small funding is available for Neuromatch Academy 2022 tuition. This funding will be awarded to a couple of female students who cannot afford to pay the tuition. To apply, you must first be accepted at the Neuromatch Academy 2022.

The application deadlines can be found here: The conditions and details for this funding will be published soon. The funding applicants must still first apply and be accepted to the Neuromatch Academy 2022 in order to be eligible to apply for this funding. The tuition will be paid directly to the Neuromatch Academy 2022 for the awarded students. This is the first year for this foundation. I wish I could give more. It is my goal to increase the funding next year.

THINGS-EEG dataset neuroimaging recordings

If you are an aspiring computational neuroscientist, chances are you need data to help design and run your research projects and experiments. A few weeks ago, Dr. Olbrich also adhered to the fact that raw data, including EEG data, is becoming more and more available for anyone to use.

I personally myself just recently started thinking of exploring ideas around making my own data available. Not sure how that would work but just last night I thought of exploring the idea.

Here is one example of one of those projects who have made their codes along with their EEG data (50 subjects) available. This is just one example. I highly recommend you do your own search to help find solid good raw data.

Excerpt from the article: “The THINGS-EEG dataset provides neuroimaging recordings to a systematic collection of objects and concepts and can therefore support a wide array of research to understand visual object processing in the human brain.”

Exploring with big thinkers: Neural networks with EEG data

Thinking big with these big thinkers helps stretch our minds. There is so much to be discovered in this new era of machine learning, deep learning, AI, Robotics, etc. All of these amazing technological advances are helping scientists from all kinds of disciplines explore areas of natural forces that we could never have dreamed of exploring. In our case, that area is the brain, the neural activities of all kind.

So, if you are scientist, a student, or an aspiring one, get inspired by these big thinkers, put on your most favorite music (mine is EDM), and start learning, experimenting, and exploring!!
