Functional Neuroimaging Methods


In this class you will learn neuroimaging methods in the context of accurate, reproducible, and open science. There is no substitute for wrestling with data yourself, and so this is a hands-on course. You will need to bring a laptop on which to install Matlab and conduct analyses. Some background in neuroimaging or programming will be helpful, but is not required. Topics covered include experimental design, accounting for artifacts, single-subject models, and group models. By the end you will have used a computer script to analyze an fMRI dataset and have a good understanding of preprocessing and statistical analyses in fMRI. PREREQ: Psych 100B, and either Psych 3604 or Psych 4413, or graduate standing with instructor permission. Enrollment limited to 24.
