#hcsmin via @nrip Can Computing Keep up With the Neuroscience Data Deluge?

Today's neuroscientists have some magnificent tools at their disposal. They can, for example, examine the entire brain of a live zebrafish larva and record the activation patterns of nearly all of its 100,000 neurons in a process that takes only 1.5 seconds. The only problem: One such imaging run yields about 1 terabyte of data, making analysis the real bottleneck as researchers seek to understand the brain. To address this issue, scientists at Janelia Farm Research Campus have come up with a set of analytical tools designed for neuroscience and built on a distributed computing platform called Apache Spark . In their paper in Nature Methods , they demonstrate their system's capabilities by making sense of several enormous data sets. (The image above shows the whole-brain neural activity of a zebrafish larva when it was exposed to a moving visual stimulus; the different col...
