    FUNDAMENTALS OF COGNITIVE NEUROIMAGING

    Winter Quarter 2011

    Units: 3
    Prerequisites:

    PSC 210: FUNDAMENTALS OF COGNITIVE NEUROIMAGING".

    The class is intended to provide students with a rudimentary understanding of how the Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (FMRI) works, how to design a good FMRI

    experiment, how the data are processed and analyzed, and how to make good inferences from the results. The class is very useful if you plan to do FMRI research and also if you plan to read or review a lot of imaging papers.

    You might be asking yourself, "Should I take this class?" I would say the answer is yes if:

    (a) you are interested in doing MRI research, but don't know muchabout it
    (b) you read a lot of MRI research, and would like to be able to think more critically about it.

    (c) You are currently doing MRI research, but feel that you don't have a comprehensive knowledge of the principles behind MR physics, the physiology of the BOLD response, MRI data processing, or analysis.
