Skill Level: Basic

Session Number: WE-04

This session will cover introductory and intermediate topics in BOLD fMRI acquisition and analysis, including basic task based and resting state fMRI analysis using general linear model and data-driven analysis approaches, respectively, as well as a couple of topics in advanced functional MRI and high spatial and temporal resolution.

Target Audience
This course is designed for basic and clinical researchers who would like to get a broad, basic-level introduction to fMRI, from acquisition to analysis.

Educational Objectives
As a result of attending this course, participants should be able to:
- Describe basic BOLD signal physiology; 
- Recall aspects related to fMRI acquisition and preprocessing; 
- Explain the considerations behind the design of task fMRI experiments;
- Describe the analysis approach to task and resting-state fMRI; and
- Identify opportunities and pitfalls of fMRI at high spatial and/or temporal resolution.
