Neurophysiology research, which focuses on recording brain cell activity, produces enormous amounts of complex data that are difficult to manage. Drs. Rubel and Ng will build upon the Neurodata Without Borders: Neurophysiology project to create a system that will allow for standardizing, sharing, and reusing neurophysiological data. The team will design an open source software system; develop methods to establish a consistent vocabulary for defining cell types, measurements, and behavioral tasks; and create tools to help the community adopt these new resources and standards. The proposed system will help accelerate neurophysiological discoveries as well as reproducibility studies.
