We are pleased to announce the 2019 HCP Course: "Exploring the Human Connectome", to be held July 8 – 12, 2019 at the University Place Hotel and Conference Center at Portland State University in Portland, Oregon, USA.
This 5-day intensive course will provide training in acquisition, processing, analysis and visualization of whole brain imaging and behavioral data using methods and tools developed by the WU-Minn-Oxford Human Connectome Project (HCP) consortium.
The course is designed for those interested in:
Participants will learn how to acquire, analyze, visualize, and interpret data from four major MR modalities (structural MR, resting-state fMRI, diffusion imaging, task-evoked fMRI) plus magnetoencephalography (MEG) and extensive behavioral data. Lectures and labs will provide grounding in neurobiological as well as methodological issues involved in interpreting multimodal data, and will span the range from single-voxel/vertex to brain network analysis approaches.
The course is open to students, postdocs, faculty, non-profit and industry participants. The course is aimed at both new and current users of HCP data, methods, and tools, and will cover both basic and advanced topics. Prior experience in human neuroimaging or in computational analysis of brain networks is desirable, preferably including some familiarity with FSL and Freesurfer software.
We look forward to seeing you in Portland!
