Neuroimaging is a rapidly developing multidisciplinary field with new possibilities of understanding the brain both in health and disease. Functional neuroimaging tools, such as fMRI and EEG, aim to provide valuable insights into brain structure-function and brain-behavior relationships. There are three parts in this course: principles of functional neuroimaging, experimental design and data analysis, applications to cognitive neuroscience. NMR/MRI teaching tools will be used to provide students with hands-on experience on MR data recordings and analysis. This course is appropriate for graduate/ advanced undergraduate students majoring in neuroscience, physics or any other fields with an interest in the use of functional neuroimaging, brain data analysis and modeling of brain processes.
