Short description

Course description

Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) is one of the major methods for measuring neural activity in humans, and techniques for processing and analysing the data are under constant development. Basic understanding of analysis techniques is not only relevant for students who are planning to work with fMRI data, but also necessary for critical evaluation of existing literature.  The course will provide students with hands-on experience with the execution of the most well established techniques and perform a full fMRI analysis from individual datasets to groupwise results. Students will learn to perform the necessary steps using the SPM12 software package (Statistical Parametric Mapping 2012).
