The general structure will be as follow:

. two seminars in the morning, describing the state of the art of specific steps of neuroimaging based research;
. application-oriented short lectures followed by hands on sessions in the afternoon; some of them parallel for focus on EEG or fMRI.

The program is reversed for Monday.

The seminars will be held in Auditorium 1, ground floor of the main Psychology building (2, Henri Dunantlaan).

The hands on sessions will take place in PC Room 1 (Data Analysis department, across the street) and PC Room 2 (1st floor, main Psychology building). The division will be communicated shortly.

These sessions will be constituted of 45min lectures followed by about 2 hours of practical sessions with exercises based on generic data and feedback and 1 hour Q&A relating to own data when applicable.
