Methods and Concepts for fMRI of the Human Brain
Workshop for PhD students and researchers at Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences
The Max Planck Institut for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences hosts the workshop "Methods and Concepts for fMRI of the Human Brain" from 13 to 15 April 2015.
The educational course is the 17th in a very successful series of annual trainings offered by the German Chapter of ISMRM on varying topics. This year, it is organized by the Institute's NMR Unit with a program me dedicated to “Methods and Concepts for fMRI of the Human Brain”. The course is intended primarily for PhD students but also for scientists, clinicians, or psychologists who want to extend their work to include fMRI or deepen their background in specific aspects. In particular, the program me spans a range of topics including contrast mechanisms and their physiologic and biophysical origins, basic and advanced pulse sequence aspects, methods for image analysis, state-of-the-art fMRI at high-resolution, as well as the investigation of cortical networks. Besides invited lectures from leading international researchers the program also offers a hands-on introduction into fMRI image analysis.
