Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging: an introductory course

Degree(s) New students per year/session 45
Director Stephen Rao
Duration (yrs)
Medical College of Wisconsin. Milwaukee, Wisconsin. United States
This three-day workshop, sponsored by the MCW General Clinical Research Center, is designed to introduce the basic and clinical researcher to the theoretical and practical issues involved in conducting Functional MRI experiments. Participants will gain an understanding of the physiological principles underlying the fMRI signal change, as well as the theoretical and practical considerations in research design. The course will include firsthand exposure to the scanning environment and data collection procedures. Participants will be provided conceptual and hands-on experience with data treatment and statistical analysis. At the completion of this course, it is expected that participants will be better prepared to critique, design, and conduct fMRI studies; appreciate limitations and potentials of current fMRI technology and techniques; and better understand the expertise required to establish an fMRI research program.

Course material will be presented in the form of lectures, problem-based learning activities, involvement in an actual fMRI scanning session, and instruction in the use of fMRI analysis software. Extensive handouts will be provided.
