We are actively developing a meta-data database for data collected in the Buzsaki lab from freely moving rodents. The datasets are shared publicly via a web share and there are currently more than a thousand datasets in the database. They have been collected in the Hippocampus, prefrontal coftex, and other brain regions, using silicon probes, tetrodes and single wires. Optogenetics and other types of manipulations has been performed on a subset of the datasets. Finally the majority of the datasets has been spike sorted and sleep scoring has been performed on a large fractions of the sets.
The Cell Explorer is a graphical user interface (GUI) and standardized pipeline for exploring and classifying spike sorted single units acquired using extracellular electrodes. Please see the Github repository to download the Cell Explorer. There is a dedicated wiki/documentation for the Cell Explorer on the Github repository.
Buzcode is a standardized data-format and processing package for electrophysiological recordings and data analysis github.com/buzsakilab/buzcode. It is a work in progress currently being developed by the members of the lab.
Neurodata Without Borders: Neurophysiology (NWB:N) is a project to develop a unified data format for cellular-based neurophysiology data, focused on the dynamics of groups of neurons measured under a large range of experimental conditions. The NWB:N team consists of neuroscientists and software developers who recognize that adoption of a unified data format is an important step toward breaking down the barriers to data sharing in neuroscience.
