Horos plugin for BIDS output

We are happy to release our new plugin for Horos DICOM browser. The plugin will make it easier for us (and other Horos users) to organise our imaging datasets according to the Brain Imaging Data Structure, an emerging standard in the field. Using BIDS is a way to ensure that the data remains accessible and usable by different researchers over time, and to simplify automated data analysis, enhancing reproducibility and efficiency. The plugin started out as a project worked on by Michał Szczepanik during the 2nd Coding Sprint organized by Stanford Center for Reproducible Neuroscience. We are very grateful to CRN for creating a collaborative and inspiring atmosphere during the event. Code and binaries are available at Michał's GitHub.

Loss of consciousness is related to hyper-correlated gamma-band activity in anesthetized macaques and sleeping humans - Congratulation to international team and the leading autor Michał Bola!

Loss of consciousness can result from a wide range of causes, including natural sleep and pharmacologically induced anesthesia. Important insights might thus come from identifying neuronal mechanisms of loss and re-emergence of consciousness independent of a specific manipulation. We conclude that hyper-correlated gamma-band activity might be a signature of loss of consciousness common across various manipulations and independent of behavioral responsiveness.
