Course Module: Modern Neuroimaging Methods

Neuroimaging module I: Modern neuroimaging methods of investigation of the human brain in health and disease

Organizers: Bogdan Draganski, Ferath Kherif & Antoine Lutti




The course will include a description of the acquisition and analysis tools to study brain structure, function and connectivity. Upon successful completion of the course, students will have developed a broad knowledge of how modern neuroimaging techniques and their application improve our understanding of brain functions and discorders.
Prerequisite for this course are MATLAB skills.

Please note that the module "I" is interwined with module "C" (Clinical neuroscience). Both course modules can be taken together, but also separately.
