Statistical Parametric Mapping for PET & fMRI Short Course - Vancouver August 5-7, 2010
Positron Emission Tomography Imaging at UBC is hosting a workshop/course on the Statistical Parametric Mapping (SPM) software package from Thursday August 5th through Saturday August 7th 2010 in Vancouver, BC Canada.
The course will present instruction on the analysis and characterisation of functional imaging data. This includes Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), functional MRI (fMRI), and Positron Emission Tomography (PET). The three-day course will be divided into theoretical sessions covering experimental design and statistical inference and practical sessions in which SPM will be used to analyse exemplar data sets. The course is suitable for both beginners and more advanced users. We advise participants to gain at least some minimal familiarity with the methodology, for example, from reading introductory articles available from the SPM web page
Four instructors will be on site to present the course: Tom Nichols, Ged Ridgway, JB Poline and Darren Gitelman.
The updated and finalized course schedule is now available.
