SPM Courses

London, May & October 2024

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.

Registration is now closed for the May 2024 SPM courses.

The SPM for MRI/fMRI/VBM course takes place 13th-15th May in-person in London. Further information.

The SPM for M/EEG course takes place 7th-10th May online only. Further information.

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.

Computational Psychiatry Course Zurich 2023
This course is organized by the Translational Neuromodeling Unit (TNU), University of Zurich & ETH Zurich and is designed to provide MSc and PhD students, scientists clinicians and anyone interested in Computational Psychiatry with the necessary toolkit to master challenges in computational psychiatry research. It offers an extensive application example, provides in-depth knowledge through lectures by international speakers of the field and covers SPM tutorials for EEG, fMRI and Active Inference.
