About this Research Topic
Frontiers in Neuroinformatics hosted the research topic “Python in Neuroscience” in 2008-2009, documenting the first wave of mature tools to propel Python into common use in the field. This widespread convergence on Python as the systems integration language of choice in Neuroscience has brought with it exciting new possibilities for cross-fertilization, collaboration, and interdisciplinary interaction.
The Python ecosystem remains vibrant and inventive, and continues to produce cutting edge tools for Neuroscience research. With this second research topic on “Python in Neuroscience” we seek to showcase the most exciting developments since 2009 that include, but are not limited to, the following themes:
- interactive simulation and visualization
- workflows and automation
- brain-machine interfaces
- advances in neuroimaging analysis methods
- sharing, re-use, storage and databasing of models and data
- data analysis libraries and frameworks
- brain atlasing, ontologies, semantic web
- model description and abstraction languages
We call for contributions that document innovative use of Python for scientific work from any branch of Neuroscience.
This research topic is dedicated to the memory of Prof. Dr. Rolf Koetter, visionary, colleague and friend.
Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
