ANNOUNCEMENT: Course in fMRI October 16-19 at MGH in Boston

fMRI Visiting Fellowship Program fmrivfp at rowland.nmr.mgh.harvard.edu
Sun Jul 14 15:55:36 EST 1996

The Massachusetts General Hospital and the MGH-NMR Center announce the next:
    Visiting Fellowship Program in functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging
			 October 16-19, 1996

The purpose of the four day Visiting Fellowship Program is to provide
a serious introduction to the field of fMRI.  It is primarily intended
for people new to the field, though some experienced scientists have
found the program useful.  More advanced workshops may be developed in
the future.

Participants will receive a firm grounding in the fundamentals of
fMRI.  This will include the basic physics of MR imaging, the biology
and biophysics of the hemodynamic responses to neural activity, data
analysis (including both exploratory and statistical analyses),
stimulus presentation and response recording in the context of high
magnetic fields and electromagnetic pulses, and the design of
perceptual and cognitive experiments. A special emphasis of the course
will be the design, implementation, and execution of perceptual and/or
cognitive experiments by the participants.

Tuition is $1000 (students, $600) for the 4 day program, payable to
MGH Visiting Fellowship Program.  Enrollment will be limited to 23,
and the program often reaches this number, so please register early.
