Lecture Series

We are offering a series of interactive, in-person workshops designed to introduce current and future facility users to the processing and analysis of a variety of MRI data modalities (i.e., functional MRI, structural MRI, and diffusion-tensor imaging) that are regularly used in neuroscience research. 

Participants* are welcome to sign up for some or all of the modules offered. 

The workshop series comprises five modules:

Orientation to MRI Analysis Module 
Apr 8th; 1 session
This module will provide a general orientation to MRI data collection and processing.  We will cover important topics including (1) review of MRI data file types and file conversion process, (2) accessing sample data sets that will be used in workshops, and (3) navigating data processing in Linux environment. 

fMRI Analysis Module
Apr 15th & 22nd; 2 sessions
This module will provide an introduction to the preprocessing and analysis of functional MRI task data.  We will walk you through the steps involved in processing individual data as well as conducting basic group-level analyses.

sMRI Analysis Module
Apr 29th & May 6th; 2 sessions
This module will provide an introduction to the preprocessing and analysis of structural MRI data.  We will walk you through the steps involved in processing individual data as well as conducting basic group-level analyses.

DTI Analysis Module
May 13th & 20th; 2 sessions
This module will provide an introduction to the preprocessing and analysis of diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) data.  We will walk you through the steps involved in processing individual data as well as conducting basic group-level analyses.

Intro to Multi-Modal Imaging Module
May 27th; 1 session
This module will be provide a general overview and introduction to integrating imaging data from multiple modalities (e.g., fMRI and sMRI) in a single analysis/approach.

(*This workshop series is offered to MU faculty, staff and students only.)
