What is neuroinformatics?
Neuroinformatics tackles the challenge of integrating information across all levels and scales of neuroscience. Tools and standards provide solutions for fitting together and analyzing data that comes from vastly different timescales, techniques and animals across all levels, from single cells to the whole brain.
The field provides guidelines for recording information about data and how it is analyzed so that experiments can be reproduced and the data can be reused in new studies.
