Advanced topics in functional MRI in cognitive and clinical neuroscience
Organizers: Patrik Vuilleumier, Andreas Kleinschmidt, Sophie Schwartz, Dimitri Van De Ville
This course will focus on specific methodological approaches to functional brain imaging and is intended for students who have previous background and experience in fMRI. The format will be interactive and include 1) general theoretical overviews of a given topic, 2) practical demonstration on real dataset in small groups, 3) a critical discussion of 1-2 papers that need to be read by the students prior to each session. Students are also encouraged to propose papers or experimental issues based on their own interest. Each course will be directed by a main “tutor” who is a renowned researcher in the field.
Brain & Behaviour Lab, room 4106, CMU, Geneva (** except May 15 and 22: EPFL)
