Education is the core mission of the Staglin One Mind CCN. The center offers a pilot funds program that provides unique support, especially to young investigators, training activities in neuroimaging, hosts class visits, and regularly provides one-on-one training to researchers.
NEUROIMAGING TRAINING PROGRAM
While the two week summer intensive is no longer running, the program website with slides and other useful resources can be found here, and the corresponding video lectures can be found here.
The purpose of this course was to provide a solid foundation in state-of-the-art magnetic resonance neuroimaging methods. The course covered all aspects of MRI-based neuroimaging data acquisition, experimental design, and data analysis. In addition, students interacted closely with these lecturers in hands-on laboratory exercises and data analysis projects.
Faculty and Staff who utilize the Staglin Center to conduct their research often teach or host UCLA courses and seminars in MRI physics, analysis, and statistics.
See below for upcoming or continuous offerings.
UG LEVEL: PSYCH186D – LABORATORY IN FUNCTIONAL NEUROIMAGING
Dr. Martin Monti
Introduction to study of brain with functional resonance imaging (fMRI). All major aspects to be discussed, from the physical basis of MR signal to data analysis strategies. The course includes both lectures and hands-on analysis of functional MRI data. (typically held in the Fall)
GS LEVEL: PSYCH265 – COMPUTATIONAL METHODS FOR NEUROIMAGING
Dr. Martin Monti
Theory and practice of processing and analysis of functional MRI data. Topics include the biophysics and physiology of the BOLD signal, data acquisition, data preprocessing, statistical modeling and inference for both task and resting-state data. The course includes both lectures and hands-on analysis of functional MRI data. (typically held in the Fall)
