WELCOME TO THE BIENNIAL EDINBURGH SPM COURSE WEBSITE!

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 morning, 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 pre-processing 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, most courses use SPM in combination with toolboxes (multivariate pattern classification PRONTO/RSA, dynamic functional connectivity, etc).

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.
