The 2015 Multimodal Neuroimaging Training Program coordinated by the University of Pittsburgh and Carnegie Mellon University, with funding from NIH, will be hosting our annual 6-week summer workshop, which will provide training in multiple imaging modalities, including DTI, functional MRI, PET, MEG/EEG, Near IR Spectroscopy and optical imaging. Our approach will be to focus on training scientists who have experience in one imaging modality, and would like to integrate multiple imaging modalities in order to address neuroscience questions. The summer workshop will consist of basic lectures, hands-on laboratory work, a Multimodal Neuroimaging Symposium focusing on "Health Neuroscience", and completion of projects, emphasizing the methodologies of multiple imaging modalities. Participants in this workshop, (based upon eligibility and VISA status, and allow ability to receive any funds or support from the program), will receive a subsistence allowance of $2,500 to cover meals and other education-related expenses, housing, partial funds to help defray travel cost and other related expenses. The application deadline is January 31, 2015. Please note that funding is limited to 12 participants. Please visit our website for more information and the application procedure: http://www.mntp.pitt.edu or e-mail us with questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This intensive 5-day course covers both the theory and practice of functional and structural brain image analysis. Background concepts and the practicalities of analyses are taught in detailed lectures; these are interleaved with hands-on practical sessions where attendees learn how to carry out analysis for themselves on real data, with one computer provided for every two attendees (with attendees to work in pairs). After completing the course, attendees should be able to analyse their own FMRI and MRI data sets.
This 5-day intensive course will provide training in the acquisition, analysis and visualization of data from the Human Connectome Project using methods and informatics tools developed by the WU-Minn HCP consortium plus data made freely available to the neuroscience community. Participants will learn how to acquire, analyze, visualize, and interpret data from four major MR modalities (structural MR, resting-state fMRI, diffusion imaging, task-evoked fMRI) plus magnetoencephalography (MEG) and extensive behavioral data. Lectures and labs will provide grounding in neurobiological as well as methodological issues involved in interpreting multimodal data, and will span the range from single-voxel/vertex to brain network analysis approaches.
BrainSTIM 2015 - Hawaii Brain Stimulation and Imaging Meeting
Friday, June 12, 2015- Saturday, June 13, 2015
Queens Medical Center, Honolulu, Hawaii, USA
BrainSTIM 2015 will be the first ever meeting focused on the combination of brain imaging and stimulation. The meeting will have keynote lectures by leaders in the fields of imaging and stimulation, talks selected from submitted abstracts, educational sessions on integrated brain stimulation and imaging, poster sessions and other opportunities to network. The meeting is designed to inform and educate all who are interested in these topics, from novices to experts.
Harmonization Principles for Analyzing MRI-Datasets from Diverse Sources
Friday, June 19, 2015- All Day
Hilton Hawaiian Village
The volume of neuroimaging data produced is increasing steadily, as are explicit "big data" projects, where 100's or 1000's of subjects are studied and shared with the community. Even for small studies, it is increasingly required that the imaging data are shared. However the value of this quantity of data will be limited if a constellation of different methodologies are used in its preparation. For many aspects of brain imaging, the imaging and analysis techniques have matured so that best-practice options are easily identifiable.
The purpose of the workshop is to bring together experts methodologists and leaders of neuroimaging studies large and small to discuss ways to harmonize practice. From image acquisition sequence, to quality control methods, to statistical analyses, NIMH is seeking ways to maximize the utility of shared resources. It is seeking input on how to publicize the existing tools that could be embraced to minimize site-to-site variability, and to identify shortcomings in existing tools that make it more difficult for users to produce high quality and comparable neuroimaging results. A series of short presentations will be followed by a lengthy discussion from all participants.
Summer School on Neurocomputational Approaches to Decision Making: From Perception to Social Cognition
Monday, August 10, 201512:00 AM
- Friday, August 14, 201512:00 AM
Nijmegen, the Netherlands
This course will train motivated MSc and starting PhD students on how to use modern computational approaches for understanding the healthy and the disordered mind. The school will be based on faculty lectures, hands-on computer exercises, demos, journal clubs, and poster presentations.
