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 27-29 October 2016 (fMRI/VBM/PET).

A satellite short course on MR Physics for SPM Users will take place on 26th October 2016
organised by the WTCN Physics group.

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.
