CDVS Workshop: R Open Lab: semi-structured opportunities for learning R
Come once or come each week: This six-week, semi-guided hour provides a safe and comfortable environment for learning more about the R programming language, RStudio, and the Tidyverse. The curriculum is based on the Master the Tidyverse workshop. The series goal is to enable researchers and students a low-stress hour to hone your own data savvy skills. Attendees will gain greater familiarity with a tool-suite designed to foster reproducibility and transparency vital for the researcher's workflow.
Data Dialogue: Greg Appelbaum (DIBS)
Dr. Appelbaum is a member of the Brain Stimulation Division of Psychiatry, where he heads the Human Performance Optimization lab (Opti Lab) and directs the Brain Stimulation Research Center. As a member of the Duke Institute for Brain Sciences (DIBS) he teaches and advises in the Neuroscience major, is an affiliate of the Center for Cognitive Neuroscience, and has a secondary appointment in the Department of Psychology and Neuroscience. Lunch: 11:45 am Seminar: 12:00 noon Professor Appelbaum's research is focused on understanding the psychological and neural mechanisms that support human visual cognition and understanding how these change with experience, rehabilitation, and training. This research has utilized behavioral psychometrics and multiple complimentary human neuroimaging (e.g. fMRI, EEG, fNIRS) and neurostimulation (e.g. TMS, ECT) techniques to understand the complex interplay of perception, attention, memory and motor control. As a faculty, he research has been continually funded by grant awards from DARPA, NIH, and the Army Research Office, leading to over 50 published articles and book sections.
CDVS Workshop: Intro to Gephi for Network Visualization
Networks (or graphs) are a compelling way of studying relationships between people, places, object, ideas, etc. Generating network data and visualizations, however, can be an involved and unintuitive process requiring specialized tools. This workshop will explore some of the easier ways to produce, load, and visualize network data using Gephi, an open source, multi-platform network analysis and visualization application.
Data Dialogue: Julia Lane and Ben Feder
LUNCH: 11:45 am SEMINAR: Noon
The purpose of the North Carolina Cognition Conference is to foster collaboration and cooperation among different research groups throughout North Carolina and its neighboring states. Attending researchers are involved in research on human cognition and allied disciplines. The conference provides an ideal opportunity to learn what research is ongoing in North Carolina, to share ideas, to promote and recruit students.
CDVS Workshop: Dashboards, slides, and R Markdown
Explore the variety of reports that can be generated with R. Learn to compose dashboards while easily implementing the inherent interactivity of HTMLWidgets orchestrated through R and RStudio. Flexible and reproducible reports are easily produced using literate programming techniques. The R/RStudio/Tidyverse suite enables you to render your analysis into a wide variety of elegant reports. Simplicity is a key factor. An R notebook can be repurposed to produce interactive dashboards, slides, e-books, journal articles, PDF documents, MS Word, MS Power Point, Excel, Web Pages, Web Sites, and more. R Markdown is the key to structuring your final report document. Code chunks containing R code, within literate programming scripts, enable any R author to reproducibly render multiple report outputs. These techniques enable you to reach your target audience.
