CaImAn

1 minute read

Recent advances in calcium imaging acquisition techniques are creating data sets of the order of Terabytes/week. Memory and computationally efficient algorithms are required to analyse in reasonable amount of time terabytes of data.

This projects implements a set of essential methods required in the calcium imaging movies analysis pipeline. Fast and scalable algorithms are implemented for motion correction, movie🍿 manipulation and source and spike extraction. CaImAn also contains some routine to the analysis of behaviour from video cameras📷 . In summary, CaImAn provides a general purpose tool to handle large movies, with special emphasis tools🧰 for calcium imaging and behavioural data sets.

My Involvement

This project led by Eftychios Pnevmatikakis and Andrea Giovannucci (see my recommandation letter) was the one I worked on during my internship in New York City at the Simons foundation during the summer 2017. I worked on the comparison project, the Graphical User interface, the documentation and many more topics.

I think that nothing can describe better what this mission was about than my internship report.

CaImAn has meant a lot to me and I am very proud to announce that our paper has been submitted, accepted and published on eLife very recently.
