SPM Courses

London, May & October 2016

The FIL SPM course on using Statistical Parametric Mapping for neuroimaging is held each May and October as part of the Institute of Neurology's short course programme.

Since 2010, we provide two separate SPM courses reflecting the different imaging modalities. There is a three-day course on SPM for EEG/MEG followed by the long-established three-day course on SPM for fMRI/VBM/PET. Both courses are suitable for beginners and more advanced users. We advise students to gain at least some minimal familiarity with the methodology, for example, from reading introductory articles available from the SPM web page or by following data analysis examples in the SPM manual.

The next SPM course in London will take place on 8-10 May 2017 (M/EEG) and 11-13 May 2017 (fMRI/VBM).

Externally organised SPM courses

Other SPM courses are organised around the world at different times of year and in different languages. If you do organise one, please let us know so that it can be listed here.

Edinburgh SPM course, UK, 24-28 April 2017
This course runs every 2 years and offers a comprehensive theoretical and practical coverage of all functional MRI-related aspects of SPM.
Some particular features of this course are: (1) A one-day course for absolute beginners, (2) user-driven sessions at the computer in the afternoon for the beginners (6 hours practical over 2 days), (3) Practicalities for neuroimaging reproducibility, (4) Advanced users work in small groups with workshops for computational morphometry, multivariate pattern classification analyses, representational similarity analyses and functional connectivity.

SPM Starter Workshop, Hannover, Germany, 24-26 May 2017
In our 8th SPM Starter workshop we offer a rich and pleasant environment to familiarize yourself with SPM and some useful extension under skilled supervision. We believe that the best way to learn how to operate SPM is by actually using it. Various (fun and enjoyable!) learning techniques will enable you to learn what's necessary for you to carry out basic data analyses in SPM. Go pro and learn how to analyze your own functional magnetic resonance imaging data from A to Z.
Zurich SPM course, Switzerland, 2018
This three-day course, which is held annually since 2007, offers a comprehensive coverage of all MRI-related aspects of SPM.
