NEUROBIO 881 / PSY 762 - Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging

This course will cover the complete fMRI analysis pipeline, from the scanner to constructing brain maps. Students will be trained on basic principles of fMRI, artifact detection, preprocessing, and task-fMRI signal estimation. This course will also cover recent advancements in resting-state fMRI, connectivity/graph-theoretic/independent-component analyses, and machine learning. The course will consist of lectures, review of key research papers and integrated laboratory sessions. The laboratory sessions will include hands-on analysis of fMRI data sets. Students will gain experience both in the theoretical principles of fMRI analysis and in the practical aspects of implementing them.


NEUROSCI 382L / PSY 303L - Functional Neuroimaging

Overview of use of functional magnetic resonance imaging (FMRI) in the investigation of human sensory, motor, and cognitive function. Topics will include FMRI to study human brain systems involved with movement, sensation, perception, and memory. Students will design and execute a neuroimaging experiment. Prior course in Statistics is strongly recommended. Consent of instructor required.
