The Whole Brain Catalog is a 3D virtual environment to facilitate solutions for currently intractable challenges in brain research. It is meant to enable the synthesis of data measured from brains at different scales into more coherent models of brain structure and function. The Whole Brain Catalog is a client-server platform that provides rich 3D views for researchers to zoom in, out, and around structures deep in a multi-scale spatial framework of the mouse brain. A 3D graphics engine used in graphics-intensive computer gaming generates high-resolution visualizations that bring data to life through biological simulations and animations.
Brain Workshop is an implementation of the Dual N-Back mental exercise. This exercise is a mental activity that has been scientifically shown to improve your working memory (short-term memory) and fluid intelligence. The game involves remembering a sequence of spoken letters and a sequence of positions of a square at the same time. Brain Workshop includes additional challenging game modes beyond Dual N-Back.
EDFbrowser is a multi-platform viewer for EEG, EMG, and ECG storage files. It supports the EDF, EDF+, BDF, and BDF+ file formats. It supports montages, annotations, precise measurements by using crosshairs, and a zoom function by drawing a rectangle with the mouse. It shows signals from different files at the same time. It includes a built-in EDF/EDF+/BDF/BDF+ to ASCII converter, a built-in Nihon Kohden to EDF+ converter (including annotations), a built in EDF+D to EDF+C converter, a BDF(+) to EDF(+) converter and a built-in EDF/EDF+/BDF/BDF+ compatibility checker.
ChangeBlindness is a small game that demonstrates the change blindness phenomenon. The effect shows that our brains have a low-level (i.e. subconscious) change detection capability that can be disabled pretty easily (for instance, with a flicker of around 100ms). The game illustrates this using an increasing number of icons, one of which will change during a flicker. The goal of the game is to find the changing icon as quickly as possible.
libphidgets is a user-space access library for the Phidget devices. It provides a generic and flexible way to access and interact with the Phidgets, and comes with all the advantages of a user-space library. It is based on libhid (which is based on libusb), thus it requires no HID support in the kernel. Furthermore, it aims to support all operating system supported by libusb/libhid: Linux, BSD, OS X, and Windows.
Brook for GPUs is a compiler and runtime implementation of the Brook stream programming language for modern graphics hardware. The goals for this project are to demonstrate general purpose programing on GPUs, to provide a useful tool for developers who want to run applications on GPUs, and to research the stream language programming model, streaming applications, and system implementations.
A garbage collector as a replacement for C malloc or C++ new.
A system to allow unattended reboots with an encrypted root file system.
