Neuroinformatics Center receives $1,000,000March 3, 2003
In 2003, Researchers at the University of Oregon Neuroinformatics Center received a $1,000,000 grant from the National Science Foundation to build an advanced Grid computing infrastructure to apply high-performance computing to diagnosing and treating brain-related conditions. Link to full article.
Neuroinformatics Center releases its High Performance Signal Analysis ToolkitJanuary 31, 2006
The GEMINI Team is proud to announce the version 1.0 release of its High Performance Signal Analysis Toolkit (HiPerSAT). This version includes implementations of the Infomax, FastICA and Sobi algorithms, as well as integration with Matlab and EEGLAB. HiPerSAT is writen in C++, and takes advantage of parallel computing resources by using OpenMP and MPI. Download the HiPerSAT Technical Report for more information.
Tucker elected as Fellow of the National Academy of InventorsJanuary 9, 2019
NIC Director Don Tucker is the UO’s first faculty member to be elected as Fellow of the National Academy of Inventors, see full story here. The NAI induction will be held at the Space Science Center in Houston in April 2019.
Licensing BrainKJanuary 21, 2019
The patent for the relative thresholding method of brain segmentation developed by Dr. Kai Li (US Pat. No. 8,478,011) is being licensed by the University of Oregon to the Brain Electrophysiology Laboratory Company. This method is integral to the BrainK processing workflow (Li, et al., 2016). The BEL Co. is implementing this method in a new workflow for automated creation of simulations of electrical properties of head tissues for measuring and manipulating the electrical fields of individual brains.
Virtual Electric BrainOctober 15, 2018
UO grad students Erin McCarthy and Alister Johnson were funded under the NSF UO Center for Big Learning to develop a virtual brain simulation capable of modeling the electrical activity of the human brain.
Using the framework developed by the Virtal Brain Project this project will allow both neural network simulations and the analysis of the electrical activity of individual persons.
