Integrative Neuroimaging 

This course is open for applications from May 1 – May 31

Neuroimaging is an interdisciplinary field of study related to the neural substrate of brain functions and how such structure-function relation change in relation to development, aging and disease. It is at the intersection of basic, clinical, and cognitive neuroscience on the one hand, and on the intersection of physics, engineering, statistics, and image processing, on the other, requiring knowledge and skill from all these areas. The course introduces questions of how to address the biological underpinnings of brain functions can be addressed in animal models and humans, and how to address development, aging, and disease.  During the course, basic neuroanatomy and a variety of imaging techniques will be introduced. We consider evidence from patients with neurological and psychiatric disorders and from normal aging individuals.

The course will be a collaboration between several researchers from the Center of Functionally Integrative Neuroscience (CFIN) community, involving scientists from Health, Nat-Tech, and the Humanities, as well as potentially several international partners. 

Some classroom teaching will be shared with the Interdisciplinary Summer School on Cognitive Neuroscience, which will run in parallel. 

The teaching will be accompanied with laboratory site demonstrations.
