Psych 6650: Seminar in Advanced fMRI Analysis 

  • Next Offered: Fall 2020
  • Course Number: 6650
  • Class Time: Wed 2:00-4:45 pm 
  • Class Location: Course to be held virtually in Fall 2020 (zoom link TBD) 

Description: This course is for students who have already completed an intro-level fMRI course and/or have prior fMRI research experience. We will discuss a range of intermediate/advanced fMRI issues and analysis techniques, such as fMR-adaptation, retinotopic mapping, multi-voxel pattern analysis, functional connectivity, representational similarity analysis, real-time fMRI, etc. Discussions may also include topics such as comparing analysis software packages, preprocessing decisions, choosing proper statistical comparisons, and interpretation of fMRI data. The format of the course will be seminar-style; we will read and discuss papers using each technique, and brainstorm how to apply and improve them in our own experiments.
