My name is Laura Masaracchia, I am new to this forum and I would like some help/information about the GSoC projects. I will start a PhD in Computational Neuroscience in Aarhus University soon and my future supervisor suggested me to apply to GSoC.
The idea is to convert into Python a MATLAB toolkit for computational neuroscience. The toolbox is called HMM-MAR (Hidden Markov Model - Multivariate Autoregressive) and it segments multivariate time series into states that are characterized by their unique quasi-stationary spectral properties. The toolkit supports different data modalities (EEG, MEG, LFP, fMRI, etc) and includes, besides the analysis methods, utilities for preprocessing, interrogation of the results, semi-supervised prediction of events and some other utilities.
I have looked into the GSoC ideas list and I am not sure which one I should choose for my proposal, or if it is possible to just apply independently. In this last case, though, I don’t know who I should contact as a mentor.
Does anybody have some advice on what would be the best option, or can clarify if I got some information wrong?
Thank you in advance!
Looking forward to your comments,
