Neuroscience 403 - Introduction to Neuroimaging

This will be the 5th year this course has been offered (winter 2022) and will normally be offered each January-April term.

This course will again be offered Jan-April 2022, and currently it is expected that the course will be delivered in-person, in a classroom setting. Plans are still being developed by the university, so this plan may change, and updates will be posted here. The material may be delivered in multiple formats to provide flexibility.   

Lectures will cover basic concepts, theory, and applications, of neuroimaging methods, with a focus on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computed tomography (CT), positron emission tomography (PET), and single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT), for research, and for clinical use.
At the end of the term students will do a term project which consists of examining/critiquing a current application of neuroimaging.

 

 

Neuroscience 803 - Magnetic Resonance Imaging

This is a graduate level course and will normally be offered each September - December term.

This course will again be offered this coming fall term (Sept-Dec 2021).  It is expected that this course will be delivered in-person, in a classroom setting. Plans are still being developed by the university, so this plan may change, and updates will be posted here. The material may be delivered in multiple formats to provide flexibility.   

Lectures will be supplemented by videos, and by the course text book "Essentials of Functional MRI". The course text is being transitioned to open-source by the publisher, and should be available electronically (at no cost) in time for the fall term.

At the end of the term students will do a term project which consists of designing an MRI acquisition protocol. In previous years the project results were used to acquire images of a human volunteer during one session in the MRI Facility.  Due to Covid-19 it is unclear if this will be possible this year, and plans will be adjusted as needed

Registering in the course requires permission from the instructor. (email stromanp@queensu.ca for permission) This is so that I can determine the range of background training spanned by the students taking the course, and can adjust lectures accordingly.
