Data analysis workflows in many scientific domains have become increasingly complex and flexible. To assess the impact of this flexibility on functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) results, the same dataset was independently analyzed by 70 teams, testing nine ex-ante hypotheses. The flexibility of analytic approaches is exemplified by the fac...

In our natural environment our senses are bombarded with a myriad of diverse signals, only a subset of which is relevant for our current goals. Using sub-millimeter-resolution fMRI at 7T we resolved BOLD response and activation patterns across cortical depth in early sensory cortices to auditory, visual and audiovisual stimuli under auditory and vi...
Article
The present study was designed to record electrophysiological responses to graded noxious thermal stimuli of serotonergic and nonserotonergic neurons in the lateral paragigantocellular reticular (LPGi) and the raphe magnus (RMg) nuclei in rats. All of the neurons recorded were juxtacellularly filled with neurobiotin and identified with double immun...
Article
Empirical observations of how labs conduct research indicate that the adoption rate of open practices for transparent, reproducible, and collaborative science remains in its infancy. This is at odds with the overwhelming evidence for the necessity of these practices and their benefits for individual researchers, scientific progress, and society in...

The culture and norms of research laboratories can greatly influence the quality of scientific outputs produced by the lab and the well-being of its members. In most labs, the culture that governs how individual researchers behave in their work is often implicit and situational. In contrast, some labs develop their own lab manual, a written documen...

The Brain Imaging Data Structure (BIDS) is a standard for organizing and describing neuroimaging datasets, serving not only to facilitate the process of data sharing and aggregation, but also to simplify the application and development of new methods and software for working with neuroimaging data. Here, we present an extension of BIDS to include p...

Arterial spin labeling (ASL) is a non-invasive MRI technique, allowing quantitative measurement of cerebral perfusion. Incomplete or inaccurate reporting of acquisition parameters complicates quantification, analysis, and sharing of ASL data, particularly for studies across multiple sites, platforms, and ASL methods. Therefore, there is a strong ne...

As the global health crisis unfolded, many academic conferences moved online in 2020. This move has been hailed as a positive step towards inclusivity in its attenuation of economic, physical, and legal barriers and effectively enabled many individuals from groups that have traditionally been underrepresented to join and participate. A number of st...

Brainhack is an innovative meeting format that promotes scientific collaboration and education in an open, inclusive environment. This NeuroView describes the myriad benefits for participants and the research community and how Brainhacks complement conventional formats to augment scientific progress.

The move from in-person to online scientific conferences due to the global health crisis has been hailed as a positive step towards inclusivity in its attenuation of economic, physical and legal barriers. Yet pre-existing and new challenges to truly inclusive conference experiences remain unaddressed. While acknowledging the benefits of an online s...

Brainhack is an innovative meeting format that promotes scientific collaboration and education in an open and inclusive environment. Departing from the formats of typical scientific workshops, these events are based on grassroots projects and training, and foster open and reproducible scientific practices. We describe here the multifaceted, lasting...

Data analysis workflows in many scientific domains have become increasingly complex and flexible.

In our environment our senses are bombarded with a myriad of signals, only a subset of which is relevant for our goals. Using sub-millimeter-resolution fMRI at 7T we resolved BOLD-response and activation patterns across cortical depth in early sensory cortices to auditory, visual and audiovisual stimuli under auditory or visual attention. In visual...

Introduction Accumulating evidence suggests that audiovisual interactions are not deferred to association areas, but start already at the primary cortical level. Moreover, visual stimuli induce fMRI deactivations in primary auditory areas as well as activations in the visual system, and vice versa for auditory stimuli. It is unknown whether these c...

Introduction Accumulating evidence suggests that audiovisual interactions are not deferred to higher order association areas, but start already at the primary cortical level. Moreover, visual stimuli have been shown to induce fMRI activations in the visual system, with deactivations in primary auditory areas, and vice versa for auditory stimuli. It...

In the natural environment our senses are bombarded with many different signals. To form a coherent percept, the brain should integrate signals originating from a common source and segregate signals from different sources. This psychophysics-fMRI study investigated how the human brain combines bottom-up inputs (i.e. congruent VS incongruent signals...

De nombreuses études ont montré que les neurones sérotoninergiques (5-HT) bulbaires du groupe B3 jouent un rôle clé de dans les contrôles descendants de la douleur. Plus récemment il est apparu clair que ces neurones sont aussi impliqués dans les réactions végétatives induites par un stimulus nociceptive. Nous avons montré que les neurones 5-HT du...
Article
The present study was designed to identify the neuronal mechanisms causing cardiac baroreflex inhibition associated with thermal nociception in rats. Under urethane-anesthesia, noxious thermal stimuli > or = 48 degrees C were found to inhibit the cardiac baroreflex, whereas noxious stimuli < or = 46 degrees C had no effect. Using double immunohisto...

The present study was designed to identify the serotonergic pathway causing baroreflex inhibition associated with the defense reaction in rats. Under conditions that produce physiological responses typical of the defense reaction, electrical stimulation of the dorsal periaqueductal gray (dPAG) was found to double c-Fos immunoreactive serotonergic n...

We are using high-field MRI to investigate how sensory information coming from different senses is integrated at different depth in the cortex.
