Hours & Credits
This course will give an in-depth introduction to the basics of functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) covering physical and physiological basics of the fMRI-signal, experimental strategies, and analysis principles.
Main Assessment In: April/May
Functional brain imaging has become an essential tool in Biopsychology and Neuroscience that has changed the way we think about the brain today. This course aims to give an in-depth introduction to the basics of functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). The course will cover physical and physiological basics of the fMRI-signal, experimental strategies, and analysis principles.
Intended Learning Outcomes of Course
By the end of this programme students will be able to :
introduce the physical and physiological basics of fMRi imaging
read about the current models explaining neurovascular coupling: the link between neuronal activity and influx of oxygenated blood.
discuss experimental design issues of fMRI research
get hands on experience with the analysis of fMRI sample data
evaluate fMRI research in light of newly acquired knowledge about the basics of the BOLD-signal
Courses and course hours of instruction are subject to change.
Credits earned vary according to the policies of the students' home institutions. According to ISA policy and possible visa requirements, students must maintain full-time enrollment status, as determined by their home institutions, for the duration of the program.
ECTS (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System) credits are converted to semester credits/quarter units differently among U.S. universities. Students should confirm the conversion scale used at their home university when determining credit transfer.
Please note that some courses with locals have recommended prerequisite courses. It is the student's responsibility to consult any recommended prerequisites prior to enrolling in their course.
