FUNCTIONAL MAGNETIC RESONANCE COURSE
Assoc. Prof. Barış Metin
Introduction to fMR workshop
fMR is a widely use method in cognitive neuroscience researches. The basic principle of fMR is tracking the time-course of Blood Oxygen Level Dependent (BOLD) signal and fitting mathematical models to this time course in order to estimate statistical significance of task variables.
- History of f MR
- Principles of hemodynamic response
- Basics of f MR paradigms and study design
- Preprocessing steps
- Basics of general linear model
- Analysis of a fingertapping dataset
QUANTITATIVE EEG COURSE
Assist. Prof. Celal Salcini
Electroencephalography is a non-invasive neuroimaging tool measuring the summation of neuronal postsynaptic potentials recorded by electrodes placed on scalp and is the most widely used technology in the neuroimaging literature. The term quantitative EEG is an umbrella term that covers efforts to quantify and statistically analyze EEG data. Following the discovery of new analyses techniques and methods, there is a logarithmic increase in the number of EEG research in neuroscience, psychiatry and neurology. For the future, a general expectation of the researchers is that, EEG will become a clinical routine diagnostic tool for clinicians. The aim of this workshop is to give an overview of the EEG methods and analyses techniques.
At the end of the course, participants will be given a certificate of participation.
