Neurosci data deluge: Mapping brain activity at scale with cluster computing

An open-source library of analytical tools for mapping large-scale patterns of brain activity using cluster computing finds structure in two-photon imaging data from mouse and whole-brain light-sheet functional imaging data from behaving larval zebrafish. Vladimirov et al., also online, describes the light-sheet functional imaging system used here.

With such surge of data, the lack of theory is the Achilles’ heel of neuroscience.

 

Can computing keep up with the neuroscience data deluge?
