The Interdisciplinary Summer School on Neuroimaging (ISSN)

when 4 July 2016 - 15 July 2016
duration 2 weeks
credits 5 ECTS
fee EUR 140

The course is aimed at introducing talented and enthusiastic university students to basic aspects of preclinical and clinical brain imaging. Modern imaging technologies such as positron emission tomography (PET) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) will be presented and discussed because they hold a great potential to expand our current knowledge in many life science areas.

Embracing the interdisciplinary nature of the field, our program is targeted at graduate university students from psychological, medical and biological sciences as well as the natural sciences (such as chemistry, medicinal chemistry, physics, math, statistics and computer science). The Interdisciplinary Summer School on Neuroimaging aims to provide a solid foundation in state-of-the-art functional neuroimaging methods. The course will cover central aspects of PET and MRI, including experimental design, data acquisition, and computerized data analysis. The program will highlight the most current research in order to illustrate how neuroimaging can be used to test hypotheses and to provide evidence-based answers to issues related to diverse aspects of brain function in both health and disease. Students will be encouraged to interact closely with teachers, both in lectures and in practical laboratory exercises, so that they become better prepared to carry out research projects in neuroimaging and to evaluate published findings.

The course is open for both Master and Bachelor students.
