FMRI school 2013
fMRI school 2013
Time: September 17-18, 2013
Place: Lecture Hall K, Main Building of the Aalto Otaniemi campus (Map of Otaniemi), Otakaari 1 (passage via M-staircase)
This course is directed to undergraduate and graduate students, postdocs, and more advanced research personnel who are interested in applying functional magnetic resonance imaging in their research. This is an introductory course, and thus no own experience in brain imaging is required.
Marita Kattelus, marita.kattelus [at] aalto.fi, latest 10th September. For registration, we need name, affiliation (university or other institution name), country, e-mail, and whether you plan to participate to the examination.
Simo Vanni, vanni [at] neuro.hut.fi
Participants have the option to participate to examination including the lectures and Huettel et al, Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging, 2nd edition, Sinauer. Course and examination will provide three credits. Participants will be given course certificate.
For more information about the course credits, or if in addition to the course certificate you also need to get a university transcript of the credits, please contact coordinator Margareta Segerståhl, margareta.segerstahl [at] aalto.fi .
Enrolled students of Aalto University please note: In order to get the credits you must (1) register for the fMRI school in the WebOodi system using the course code Tfy-99.3249 Biomedical Engineering, Special Course. (2) Also remember to register for the exam in the WebOodi system no later than one week before the exam, using the course code.
