[visionlist] Announcing HCP Course 2017 at UBC in Vancouver June 19-23!

We are pleased to announce the 2017
HCP Course: “Exploring the Human Connectome”, to be held June
19 – 23, 2017 at the University
of British Columbia (UBC), in Vancouver, BC, Canada. This is the week before the Organization
of Human Brain Mapping (OHBM) annual meeting to be held in downtown Vancouver (about 8 miles
away from UBC) June 25-29. 

This 5-day intensive course will provide training in acquisition, processing, analysis and visualization of  and behavioral data using methods and informatics tools
developed by the WU-Minn-Oxford Human
Connectome Project (HCP) consortium.

The course
is designed for investigators who are interested in:

using data collected and distributed from the HCP young
adult study

acquiring and analyzing HCP-style imaging and behavioral data at your own institution

processing your own non-HCP data using HCP pipelines and methods

using Connectome
Workbench tools and sharing data
using the BALSA imaging

learning HCP multimodal neuroimaging analysis methods, including those that combine MEG and MRI data

exploring the HCP
MMP 1.0 multimodal parcellation brain
map and learning about how
it can be used in your analyses

positioning yourself to capitalize on HCP-style data being distributed
by the Connectome Coordinating Facility (CCF) from forthcoming large-scale
projects (e.g.,
Lifespan HCP development and aging and Connectomes Related to Human Disease projects)

will learn how to acquire, analyze, visualize, and interpret data from
four major MR modalities (structural MR, resting-state fMRI, diffusion
imaging, task-evoked fMRI) plus magnetoencephalography
(MEG) and extensive behavioral data.  Lectures and labs will provide
grounding in neurobiological as well as methodological issues involved
in interpreting multimodal data, and will span the range from
single-voxel/vertex to brain network analysis approaches.  

The course is open to students,
postdocs, faculty, and industry participants.  The course is aimed at
both new and current users of HCP data, methods, and tools, and will
cover both basic and advanced topics. Prior experience
in human neuroimaging or in computational analysis of brain networks is
desirable, preferably including some familiarity with FSL and Freesurfer softwaFor more info and to register visit the HCP
