 ANNOUNCEMENT: Registration open for 4 day workshop on functional MRI

ANNOUNCEMENT OF 4 DAY COURSE IN  FUNCTIONAL MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING

June 7-10, 1995 in Boston, Massachusetts

The Massachusetts General Hospital's NMR Center is once again offering
a 4-Day course in fMRI, the new technique for non-invasively assessing
neural activity in humans by monitoring {*filter*} flow and {*filter*}
oxygenation using Magnetic Resonance Imaging. Participants will
receive a firm grounding in the fundamentals of fMRI. This will
include the basic physics of MR imaging, the biology and biophysics of
the hemodynamic responses to neural activity, data analysis (including
both exploratory and statistical analyses), stimulus presentation and
response recording in the context of high magnetic fields and
electromagnetic pulses, and the design of perceptual and cognitive
experiments. Results from some current fMRI experiments involving
vision, memory, and clinical applications will also be discussed.  A
special emphasis of the course will be the design, implementation, and
execution of perceptual and/or cognitive experiments by the
participants.  Participants will break into small groups to design
their own fMRI experiments. These experiments will be executed, and
the resulting data analyzed, on the final day of the course.

Course fee of $1000 for the 4 day program, payable to MGH Visiting
Fellowship Program, must accompany registration and is refundable up to 30
days prior to the session. Information on accommodations and activities in
the Boston area will be forwarded upon receipt of registration. A reduced
rate of $600 is available for graduate students with letter of verification
from Department Chairman.

Based on past experience we expect this session of the course to be
oversubscribed. Enrollment will be limited. It would help us if you would
include an informal statement describing your background (clinical,
research, industrial, other), your experience with MR imaging, and your
experience with functional neuroimaging.

Please note that additional sessions of the course are scheduled for
            October  1995
            February 1996
            June     1996

Please address your inquiries for more detailed information and your
background data to:
