User Models Contributed
BrainML This is the set of base definitions for use by BrainML models. Included are structures for packaging time series, spike train, histogram, and XY traces under views, and structures for describing experimental protocol and recording site.
Cortex This is a sample model for cortical neurophysiology, mirroring that in use at neurodatabase.org. Its definitions build on more generic versions in the BrainML base package, including specialized protocol and recording site descriptors. Also included is a packaging element for an entire data submission.
BrainMetaL This is BrainMetaL, the base metalanguage definitions for BrainML. Included are the Quintessence classes, a 'link' element, 'unit' and 'vocab' elements for field types, 'dataset' elements for holding data, and elements for bibliographic citations.
Protocols These schemas and example instance documents describe protocols for querying data from and submitting data to BrainML repositories. The protocols are XML structures that act like "envelopes" containing content conforming to a BrainML content model.
ModelView The schema in this model specifies the format for documents describing BrainML-based user interfaces for querying or submitting to a BrainML data server. These "model views" are the basis of the tool and web site interface software in BrainML-X.
AnimalSubject Model components for describing animal subjects in experiments. Includes taxonomy, basic vital statistics, and training status, as well as fields and terms for describing receptive fields and motor behaviors.
Neuron Components for describing neurons, at a very abstract level, meant for inheritance.
Analysis Defines detailed input and output structures for communicating with a Laboratory for Neuroinformatics Analysis Server. Data and specifications on how to apply an analysis algorithm to it may be passed as input, and the results are returned as structured numerical output. Latest update: Fixed elements hist1dvec, hist1d, and nv_pair.
