SPM Courses

London, May & October 2014

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 11-13 May 2015 (M/EEG) and 14-16 May 2015 (fMRI/VBM) but registrations have not started yet.

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.

Lausanne SPM Course, Switzerland, 20-22 November 2014
This new edition of the Lausanne SPM course will focus on how to conduct neuroimaging studies using structural and functional MRI data within the framework of Statistical Parametric Mapping (SPM). This course is divided into two modules with theoretical and practical sessions covering all aspects of imaging data analysis from spatial pre-processing to statistical inference and reporting results. The course is suitable both for beginners and for those with previous experience of SPM.
Zurich SPM course, Switzerland, 2015
This three-day course, which is held annually since 2007, offers a comprehensive coverage of all MRI-related aspects of SPM.
