In this session, functional and structural brain connectivity (measured by resting state fMRI and diffusion MRI, respectively) will be introduced, and the link between these two connectivity types will be discussed.

Target Audience
This course is designed for basic scientists, clinicians and technologists, who would like to learn about functional and structural connectivity of the brain.

Educational Objectives
As a result of attending this course, participants should be able to:
- Describe basic concepts of structural and functional connectivity in MRI;
- Explain data processing steps for connectomics measurements; and
- Recognize the link between structure and functional connections in the brain.
