Full Day: Advanced fMRI Course Physics, Physiology, Models & Inference

Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) has taken a central role in the study of human brain function. fMRI is inherently trans disciplinary, and data acquisition and analysis are constantly evolving. Thus, there is a need for continuing education on new methods and cutting­ edge neuroscientific applications of fMRI.

The first part of the course covers the physics and physiology of fMRI, and the relationship between neuronal and BOLD activity patterns.

The second part focuses on pattern ­information analyses and how they can be used to learn about neuronal population codes and to test computational theories of brain information processing.
