Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) has become one of the most important techniques for studying the human brain in action. This workshop is intended to introduce the basic principles of fMRI and to provide an opportunity for students to experience neuroimaging research first hand. It is ideal for students considering pursuing advanced study or research assistantships within professors’ research laboratories.

Faculty: CBS Neuroimaging Staff (Mark Eldaief, Ross Mair, Jenn Segawa, Caroline West, Larry White)

Maximum: 15 undergraduate students. Others may attend if space permits.
