Statistical Parametric Mapping for MEG/EEG

Monday 20 May - Wednesday 22 May 2019

The course will present instruction on the analysis of EEG and MEG data. The first two days will combine theoretical presentations with practical demonstrations of the different data analysis methods implemented in SPM. On the last day participants will have the opportunity to work on SPM tutorial data sets under the supervision of the course faculty. We also invite students to bring their own data for analysis. The course is suitable for both 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 scanning through Litvak et al. (2011) or Henson et al. (2019).

Hands-on session

Practical hands-on session

This session will take place in UCL computer classroom (7 Queen Square). Participants can either work on SPM tutorial datasets or on their own data with the help of the faculty. There will also be an opportunity to ask questions in small tutorial groups for further discussions on the topics of the lectures.

Statistical Parametric Mapping for fMRI

Thursday 23 May - Saturday 25 May 2019

The course will present instruction on the analysis and characterisation of neuroimaging data, including Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and functional MRI (fMRI). The three-day course will be divided into theoretical sessions covering spatial preprocessing, experimental design, statistical inference and dynamic causal modelling, and practical sessions in which the SPM software will be used to analyse exemplar data sets. This course is 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 website or by following data analysis examples in the SPM manual.
