Our Neuroimaging course aims to train the neuroimaging researchers of tomorrow by focusing on teaching you the scientific and methodological aspects of neuroimaging techniques in parallel to their application to psychiatry, neurology, psychology, clinical psychology, neuroscience, and beyond.
In addition to theoretical approaches, our course has a strong applied element, which will allow you to gain practical experience of scanning techniques, with a focus on the skills needed to run a scanning session and to analyse and interpret the data produced. It also includes visits to other centres providing PET, MEG and NIRS among other imaging techniques.
