Neuroimaging Course

Advanced Neuroimaging Techniques

February 5 – 17, 2024

This is an intensive and comprehensive laboratory-oriented course focusing on applying imaging techniques to neuroscience research. The objective of this imaging course is to gain exposure to modern imaging tools, from the principles of optics to applications in modern neuroscience.

This course is intended for anyone interested in using imaging in their neuroscience research, including graduate students, postdoctoral or clinical researchers, and early-career independent investigators. The course has been formatted to include lectures in the morning and laboratory sections in the afternoon and evening. Students will rotate through all laboratory sections and focus on one section (and one optional section) for the remainder of the course.
