Weekly hands-on sessions are held using the in-campus MRI scanner. The objectives of the course are to gain a basic understanding of physical and biological concepts of fMRI; a basic knowledge of fMRI data collection and the operation of the scanner (through weekly hands-on sessions); a basic knowledge of fMRI experimental design.
