Summary

Computational methods for the analysis of human brain imaging data

Content

Human brain imaging such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and electroencephalography (EEG) allows non-invasive investigation of the human brain in health and disease.  Datasets are large, noisy, and richely structured, thus their analysis needs to rely on a broad range of mathematical and signal processing tools.  Students will learn to understand, implement, and tailor general tools including linear regression (mass univariate models), multivariate models (principal components analysis, partial least squares, independent component analysis), pattern recognition (machine learning), and graphical models. Lab exercises and Matlab exercises allow analysis of real brain imaging data. A journal club emphasizes application of brain imaging tools in fundamental and clinical neuroscience. Students will read, present and critique original research papers.
