Workshops: 14 October '22

Workshop 1. DeepLabCut

DeepLabCut is an open-source toolbox code based on machine learning enabling precise tracking of user-defined landmarks in videos. It has mainly been applied in animal research (e.g. fruit flies, zebrafish, mice) but has also already been used for tracking human movements, e.g. in sports or pathologic conditions. The toolbox is easy to use, including a full graphical user interface for those not familiar with coding. For more information please check the website.

During the workshop you will:
- learn about recent applications of DLC, e.g. tracking multiple animals and resolving social interactions;
- explore cloud-based environment for labelling and analysis example videos;
- troubleshoot your own data with DLC expert;

The workshop is open for DLC users at any stage of experience (want-to-use, beginners, profis) for intensifying the exchange among local users.

The workshop will be led by one of the main developers of DLC, Jessy Lauer

Workshop 2. Multimodal recordings: an insight into combining EEG with eye tracking and other research methods
sponsored by Brain Products Academy and Elmiko Biosignals

By applying different neuroscientific research methods, you can shed light on different aspects of your scientific questions. Combining multiple methods in simultaneous recordings may thereby give you additional, valuable insights. However, you may also experience that the setup and the temporal alignment of multimodal recordings can be challenging!

In our workshop, sponsored by Elmiko Biosignals and the Brain Products Academy, our experts will show you how you can combine EEG recordings with other modalities, and how this may benefit your research. We will discuss a variety of examples, such as the combination of EEG with fMRI, fNIRS, TMS or other physiological measures. In a practical part, we will show you a setup for simultaneous EEG-Eye Tracking as an example. During the workshop, we want to point out crucial points for the planning of such combined measurements that will guide you to a successful setup and data analysis. If you participate, you will to profit of useful tips and insights, get the chance to discuss your own questions with us, and you may get inspired with new ideas for your own EEG research!

REGISTRATION FOR WORKSHOPS!
To maintain high efficiency of the workshops, max. 20 participants will be allowed to attend to each workshop! The workshops will be held on 14 October '22 in parallel, at the same time. Therefore, you can only register for one workshop.
The registration for workshops has concluded, but if you're interested in joining them, contact us via e-mail: neuronusforum@uj.edu.pl to see extra seats availability. 

Neu-run-us : 16 October '22
Run for your brain!

When we think about the benefits of exercise, we usually think of better sleep, more energy, maintaining a healthy weight, stronger muscles, or a healthier heart. These are all true. But we rarely consider that exercise has positive effects on our brains! Increasing evidence (also discussed during the symposium "How does exercise benefit cognition and emotion?") suggests that even one session of exercise might boost our cognitive functioning and mood by influencing how our brain works.

Experience the brain benefits of exercise, and join us for a recreational run!

As part of the conference program on brain benefits of exercise, we invite all running enthusiasts to a relaxed morning jogging in the charming surroundings of the conference venue. We will set off from the Institute of Psychology the Jagiellonian University and embark on an approximately 4.4km (2.73 mi) long route leading through Jordan and Błonia Parks. The route leads through flat, asphalt paths. The run pace will be adjusted appropriately, so no matter how fast you are, feel free to join us.

See the beautiful areas of Krakow, meet conference participants, and boost your well-being before heading to the full conference day.

The run will be led by Tomasz Ligeza - chair of the symposium titled "How does exercise benefit cognition and emotion?".

See map (we run counterclockwise)
You can find a downloadable GPS track of the route here (.gpx format)
When: Sunday, October 16, 07:00 am
Where: Parking lot in front of the Institute of Psychology of the Jagiellonian University,
6 Ingardena Street
How long: approx. 30 - 40 minutes, depending on the pace

IMPORTANT NOTES By signing up for the run, you:

  1. declare that you are fit enough to take part in the run, and you are not aware of any health reasons that would exclude you from taking part in the run,
  2. understand that the slowest possible pace to finish the run in the assigned time will be about 9 min/km (14.4 min/mi),
  3. take part in the run at your own risk and acknowledge that organizers of the Neuronus conference and persons connected with the carrying out the run are not liable to participants for any personal, material, or property damage that occurs before, during, or after the run, and therefore you undertake not to assert any claims against the conference organizers on this account;
  4. acknowledge that the run's route is not excluded from regular traffic or public usage. Although the entire route runs along sidewalks and paths, it crosses the tram tracks and the traffic street twice. You understand that, by law, these intersections must be walked through with extreme caution.
