Course: BCN Introductory fMRI Course

Target Group

Researchers (PhD students, students, post-docs) planning to do an fMRI study.


Participants should be able to start an fMRI study after this week.


The BCN-NIC introductory fMRI course is hands-on, and gives the participants an introduction into all aspects of a real fMRI experiment.


The course provides insights into the basics of the MR-technique and MR safety, the physiology underlying the fMRI BOLD signal, paradigm design, stimulus presentation, data handling and statistical analysis. Participants work in small groups on a self-chosen topic, design and carry out a small fMRI experiment, analyse the data and present the results to their fellow course members.
