Bonsai Workshop

bonsai

We would like to invite you to the first workshop about Bonsai programming language with Nacho Sanguinetti from Bernstein Centre for Computational Neuroscience

Bonsai is an open visual programming language used in neuroscience for the development of behavioural paradigms. You can use Bonsai to track an animal, deliver visual or auditory stimuli and combine it with Arduino to control lasers, automated doors, synchronize different setups – and many, many more. 

More about Bonsai can be found here.

The aim of the workshop will be to develop a closed – loop behavioural paradigm, in which animal will be tracked online and the cage environment will change – the door will open, the light will be switched and the sound produced depending on animal’s position and behaviour.             You will learn also the basics of Arduino programming. During the last day of the project, you will be also able to discuss your ideas and ask us how to implement skills from the workshop in your everyday research practice.              We also plan an integration session on Tuesday, November 22nd!

 
Please find a registration form here .

The workshop will take place 10AM – 2PM each day in the Department of Physics, Warsaw University. 

 

 Juan Ignacio Sanguinetti 

(Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience, Berlin) has graduated from University of the Republic, Montevideo (Uruguay) has strong background in behavioural studies, including work on electric fish and mice. Currently he works as a post-doc in the lab of Michael Brecht in Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience, Berlin. He combines behavioural techniques with in vivo electrophysiological recordings.
