The Gallant Lab has spawned several web sites that are listed under different domains:
STRFLab is an open-source Matlab toolbox for estimating the spatio-temporal receptive fields of neurons (or voxels). This software was developed over the past decade in collaboration with Professor Frederic Theunissen’s lab. STRFLab replaces our earlier STRFPak software suite (see below). It has been completely re-written and re-factored, and it contains significant new capability.
Neurotree aims to be the definitive academic family tree for all of neuroscience. The site was developed by Stephen David (now an Assistant Professor at Oregon Health Sciences University) and Ben Hayden (now an Assistant Professor at the University of Rochester) when they were graduate students in the Gallant lab. The site is now maintained and hosted by Professors David and Hayden.
The Neural Prediction Challenge provides a platform for modelers to test their neural models on real data recorded from single neurons in several visual areas. Instructions can be found at the site.
Our YouTube channel contains demonstrations of some results from our decoding papers, and some brief lectures about our work.
We make our data freely available after the primary research papers have been published. You can find our data at the Collaborative Research in Computational Neuroscience data sharing web site.
STRFPak is our original open-source Matlab toolbox for estimating the spatio-temporal receptive fields of neurons (or voxels). However, this toolbox has been superceded by STRFLab and is no longer maintained. STRFLab is much more powerful, stable, general and easy to use than was STRFPak. Therefore, we recommend that all STRFPak users switch to STRFLab.
