Launching the Navigating Team Science professional development workshop at #SfN19 is @anne_churchland talking about the @IntlBrainLab. Their goal is to develop a brain-wide model of decision making with 21 PIs. 👇
The team is international and all labs have at least one postdoc/student on the project. Each one leads a subproject so that they can have first author publications. There are multiple staff scientists and project manager to coordinate data and work.
There are external staff scientists that assist with the more complex aspects of data sharing and this is important because this expertise may not be present in individual lab. #teamscience

Today we're releasing Autopilot - a Python framework for performing complex behavioral experiments by distributing them over swarms of Raspberry Pis. Let me tell you how we've rewritten what you should consider possible in your experiments /1
We think that to make transformative progress in understanding the brain, we need to study complex, naturalistic behavior. We know we're not alone there, but the technical demands of these experiments start to sound almost comical: eg. how hard would it be for you to... /2
measure pupil dilation, respiration, and running speed; track the position of a dozen points in 3d, record hundreds of channels of ephys while an animal performs some complex task in a virtual reality space that you render in real time? /3
