Practical data analysis and modeling in cognitive and clinical neuroscience

Gent, April 14-18th, 2014


In order to get correct and reproducible results from experiments in cognitive and clinical neuroscience, it is crucial to ensure the quality of several steps, in particular the experimental design, the data preprocessing procedure, the analyses to be performed.

Multidisciplinary Research Partnership in Neuroscience, part of the Institute for Neuroscience at Ghent University, with the support of the INCF program for Teaching and Training, is organizing an international 5-day training course.

This course will focus on data analysis in cognitive and clinical neuroscience. The participants will be able to design and implement pipelines for effective and reproducible experiments.

There will be two theoretical talks in the morning, describing the state fo the art of specific steps of neuroimaging based reseach, and application-oriented short lectures followed by hands on sessions in the afternoon; some of them parallel for the focus on EEG or fMRI.

Target audience

The course is open to PhD students and young postdoctoral researchers who use neuroimaging data for their experiments in psychology and clinical neuroscience.

Ideally the candidates are in the stage of having already acquired part of their dataset, or they are about to design their own experiment. Applicants are encouraged to present their dataset in the application (format, subjects, conditions,etc), and to bring a sample of it to the School, where they will have the chance to analyze it under the guidance of the lecturers.
