Physiology & Hemodynamics
Weekend Course

ORGANIZERS: Hanzhang Lu, Richard Buxton, Susan Francis, Benedikt Poser

Saturday, 11 May 2019
  13:30 - 16:40 Moderators:  Hanzhang Lu, Shin-Lei Peng

Skill Level: Intermediate

Session Number: WE-10

This session at intermediate level will cover the broad range of topics related to cerebral physiology and hemodynamics. 

Target Audience
This course is designed for basic scientists and clinicians who would like to gain an understanding and working knowledge of brain physiology and hemodynamics, in both depth and breadth. This course assumes basic knowledge of BOLD fMRI, neuroscience, MR data acquisition, and basic analysis methods.

Educational Objectives
As a result of attending this course, participants should be able to:
- Describe the mechanisms behind neurovascular coupling;
- Identify approaches to BOLD modeling and experimental BOLD calibration;
- Discuss approaches to studying and interpreting baseline physiology; and
- Explain relation to cardiovascular response.
