When: Feb 1 2019 - 12:30pm
Location: DHMC - Psychiatry - Silverfarb Conference Room
Description: The SYNERGY Imaging Sciences Group and the Brain Imaging Lab in Dartmouth-Hitchcock Psychiatry will be hosting an imaging didactic series beginning in February 2019 (Friday, February 1 and selected Fridays thereafter through April 19). All sessions will meet from 12:30 to 2:00 p.m. in the Silberfarb conference room in Psychiatry. All those interested in imaging research are welcome to attend. We encourage advance signup via email to: email@example.com.
The organizing focus is functional MR imaging of the brain, and consequently the first session will be an overview of fMRI imaging intended to help give a "big picture" that subsequent topic pieces can fit into. The planned schedule covers seven sessions:
Didactic Schedule: Weekly sessions on Fridays February – April 2019 from 12:30 – 2:00 p.m.
Date, Topic and Notes
1 Feb: Introduction to topics, MRI/fMRI overview, intro to MRI safety screening
15 Feb: MRI safety, Advanced Imaging Center Tour and mock patient visit (Safety pre-screen required)
8 Mar: fMRI preprocessing
22 Mar: The General Linear Model (GLM) and single subject fMRI analysis
5 Apr: fMRI group level analysis and statistics
12 Apr: BOLD and the biological basis of fMRI
19 Apr: MRI physics and MRI acquisition
The SYNERGY Imaging Sciences Group also provides individualized training, custom group didactics, and research consultations, and additional topics not covered in this series be announced separately following its completion (both participants and non-participants are therefore encouraged to give feedback on topics of interest).
