Functional MRI in Clinical Research and Practice: Measurement, Design and Analysis is a 5-day workshop designed to give clinical investigators an intensive introduction to the issues associated with using structural and functional MRI in clinical research studies. Topics will include the basic principles of MRI measurement, techniques for stimulus presentation and response recording in high magnetic fields, task design fundamentals, basic statistical methods, individual subject experimental design and analysis techniques, group design and analysis techniques, clinical study design principles and guidelines for reporting clinical neuroimaging studies.
The program is suitable for anyone conducting fMRI-based research with a clinical orientation and the presentations will cover all aspects of using fMRI techniques in clinical research contexts. The workshop will be offered for the first time at the Center for the Neural Basis of Cognition in Pittsburgh, June 13-17, 2011. See http://neurometrika.org/fMRI_Clinical for more information.
