Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging: From Neurophysiology to Cognitive Neuroscience

European Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine and Biology / ESMRMB Office
10.12.2010 - 12.12.2010  Maastricht University, Faculty of Psychology and Neuroscience, Department of Cognitive Neuroscience and Maastricht Brain Imaging Centre, Maastricht / NL
Course Content
Recent functional imaging techniques provide a non-invasive window to probe the human brain function while it is performing a task or experiencing a soensory stimulation. To understand the capabilities and limitations of each of the techniques, it is important to review the chain of physiological and physical events leading to the imaging signals.
Introducing the students to the complexities of fMRI physics, physiology and data analysis, this course will also include hands-on practical work.
