SPM Courses

London, May & October 2019

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 20-22 May 2019 (M/EEG) and 23-25 May 2019 (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, 1-5 April 2019
This course runs every 2 years and offers a comprehensive theoretical and practical coverage of all functional MRI-related aspects of SPM.
Day 1 is for absolute beginners with no or little previous exposure to MRI, MATLAB, SPM. Day 2 and 3 are for SPM beginners with little or no SPM experience, covering all the steps for mass-univariate statistical analysis. Day 4 and 5 are for SPM advanced users, with topics ranging from Bayesian analysis methods and voxel-based morphometry to multivariate pattern classification and effective connectivity analysis. All parts of the course can be booked separately or as a whole.

Hamburg SPM 2019 - Course for functional Imaging, 17-19 September 2019
The 22th SPM course in Hamburg will be held at the University Medical Centre Hamburg Eppendorf with courses for beginners and experts (teaching language: german!)
In addition a satellite workshops for a basic matlab course is available.
