Each year we are pleased to be able to offer a two week intensive summer program on advanced topics in neuroimaging. The purpose of this course is to provide a solid foundation in state-of-the-art functional neuroimaging methods. The course covers all aspects of MRI-based neuroimaging data acquisition, experimental design, and data analysis. In addition, students will interact closely with these lecturers in hands-on laboratory exercises and data analysis projects.
This is a particularly exciting year, as it takes place during the 20th anniversary of the invention of functional MRI. Thematically, therefore, we will indulge in a little story telling, but mostly be considering the advancements that could define the second 20 years, especially in the areas of data acquisition and analysis
Our program is targeted to investigators with significant experience in neuroimaging who are eager to gain more tools and knowledge to apply to their work. This year we once again will have an extraordinary faculty of internationally known experts.
We archive our webcasts at Livestream.com. The (Video) for any lecture links to a recorded video. You can see the archived 2011 summer program at our video on demand web page.
Thanks to the generosity of the National Institutes of Health under grant numbers T90 DA022768 and R90 DA023432 we are able to offer the course without tuition and are able to cover the costs of lodging for students form outside of the LA area. The program is open to applicants worldwide (though we are unable cover costs of travel). We are able to admit about 35 students each year.
The course will feature hands-on laboratory sections in neuroanatomy and image analysis, demonstrations of EEG-fMRI and an opportunity to design experiments and collect data at the UCLA Center for Cognitive Neuroscience imaging laboratory.
Lectures are simulcast on the internet at www.livestream.com/nitpsummercourse. NOTE: The Bandettini and Ogawa special lectures have a separate stream connection, as shown in the schedule below.
