This course runs every 2 years and offers a comprehensive theoretical and practical coverage of all functional MRI-related aspects of SPM.
Day 1 is for absolute beginners with no or little previous exposure to MRI or Matlab. In the mormiong, there is an overview of MRI, BOLD and fMRI designs. In the afternoon, we cover basic usage of Maltab.Day 2 and 3 are for SPM beginners with little or no SPM experience, covering all the steps for mass-univariate statistical analysis (from spatial preprocessing to statistical analysis with the General Linear Model and data visualization).
Day 4 and 5 are for SPM/fMRI advanced users. While some topics relates directly to SPM (Morphometry, basic functional connectivity, (Multivariate Bayesian Decodoing), most use SPM in combination with tolboxes (multivariate pattern classification PRONTO/RSA, dynamic functional connectivity).
All parts of the course can be booked separately or as a whole If you are a true beginner, we recommend to stick to day 1, 2 and 3 as you will not benefit from practicals on days 4 and 5.

PARTICULAR FEATURES OF THIS COURSE
•A one day course for absolute beginners(learn fundamentals and also Matlab® basics for fMRI) - this can be booked separately
•Theoretical lectures in the morning, practical and user-driven sessions at the computer in the afternoon
for the beginners (one computer per person is available - with a total of 6 hours practical over 2 days). Advanced users work in small groups to interact with a tutor for a demonstration (take your laptop).
•Practicalities for neuroimaging reproducibility - Brain Imaging Data Structure, NeuroImaging Data Model, NeuroVault
• Edinburgh Specific Advanced workshops: CAT12 for computational morphometry, PRONTO for multivariate pattern classification analyses, RSA toolbox for representational similarity analyses and rsHHR for resting state hrf and dynamic connectivity models.
• all presentations are generously timed, allowing for plenty of questions and in-depth discussions
