Donders Advanced (f)MRI Toolkit

Monday 16 September 2024, 9 am - Friday 20 September 2024, 5 pm

This intensive 5-day course will provide an overview of the MR Methods (that can be) used in Cognitive Neuroimaging. The first part of the course covers the basic MR physics needed to obtain MR signal, create MR images and discusses the physical mechanisms driving the MRI contrast (beyond fMRI) and artifacts. The second part of the course is dedicated to model free and model based fMRI processing strategies, functional and structural connectivity analyses.

Finally, considerations on data organization and “big data” processing will be covered.
Each day will consist of a well-balanced mix of lectures and hands-on sessions. The hands-on sessions are mostly based around FSL and Python. Direct interactions with the lecturers will be promoted throughout.

Costs: € 550 for PhD students; € 750 for senior researchers. If your institute is at a low/middle income country, you will also be able to request a discount, as instructed on the registration page. The deadline for pre-registration is August 26th 2024.
