SYNERGY Imaging Sciences, fMRI Brain Imaging Didactic, Tuesday Dec. 11, 10-11 am - MR Physics

When: Dec 11, 2018 - 10:00am - 11:00am

Location: Williamson Room 372

Presenters: Jamie Ford, PhD, DH Brain Imaging Lab and SYNERGY Imaging Sciences

Description: SYNERGY Imaging Sciences, fMRI Brain Imaging Didactic

The Brain Imaging Lab/SYNERGY Imaging Sciences Group is hosting an Imaging Didactic series on Fridays from September 7 through December. Anyone with an interest in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is welcome to attend. An RSVP is recommended to ensure receiving scheduling updates and other notices.
All sessions will be held in DHMC Williamson room 372, Tuesdays at 10:00 to 11:00 am, unless otherwise noted.
Sessions are taught by Jamie Ford, PhD, unless otherwise noted.

A tentative program, to be adjusted based on input from the participants, follows. PROGRAM
[9 Aug: Introduction to topics, MRI/fMRI overview]
Note from instructor Jamie Ford: If anyone wants to join, but missed the August 9 overview, I can schedule a repeat session, or the slides are available. While not strictly necessary (it is redundant with content in the rest of the series), we have found that this summary helps many people by providing a conceptual framework for the pieces that follow. Email Jamie Ford, PhD for information, slides and to reserve space.
