This session will discuss common issues that could occur in fMRI which includes issues related to acquisition, analysis, physiological assumptions, and selection of parametric indices.
Scientists and clinicians interested in fMRI technology and applications.
Upon completion of this course, participants should be able to:
-Explain common causes of image distortion, artifact, signal voiding, and blurring in fMRI;
-Outline data driven and model driven strategies of fMRI analysis and their strengths and limitations;
-Describe physiological underpinnings of fMRI signal and cautions under pathological conditions;
-Identify a range of resting-state indices from cross-correlation to network properties and their predictive value of behavior and disease; and
-Describe future directions and potentials of fMRI.
