Aim

The course will focus on how to conduct neuroimaging studies using structural and functional MRI data within the framework of Statistical Parametric Mapping (SPM). This 4 days course is divided into two modules with theoretical and practical sessions covering all aspects of imaging data analysis from spatial pre-processing to statistical inference and reporting results. The course is suitable for beginners, and for those with previous experience of SPM. See detailed programme below.
