Introduction to Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging

Spring 2020 - April 3, 2020, 1:30-4:30 PM

Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) has become one of the most important techniques for studying the human brain in action. This workshop is intended to introduce the basic principles of fMRI and to provide an opportunity for students to experience neuroimaging research first-hand in an informal setting. It is ideal for students considering pursuing advanced study or research assistantships within professors’ research laboratories.

Faculty: CBS Neuroimaging Staff (Mark Eldaief, Ross Mair, Tammy Moran, Caroline West)

Maximum: 15 undergraduate students. Others may attend if space permits.
