This project aims to convert electrophysiological, imaging and behavioral data into the nwb data format. Data was obtained from different projects in Adam Kepecs’ lab at CSHL.
We made progress converting voltage timeseries and spike events intwo NWB:B. For our trial-based behavioral data, there seems to be no appropriate neurodata type available at the moment. We discussed with Andrew that there could be a table-like neurodata type for organizing trial data, such as categories, doubles and logicals. And additional Trial neurodata type could be used to specify in particular the start times or epochs of each trial.
More generally, our trials are defined as a sequence of states, i.e. could be described using state machines, as Kris pointed out.
