Introduction to Brain Imaging in Neuroscience: With a Focus on MRI, PET, EEG and MEG Methods

  • 7.5 credits
  • Distance learning
  • Second cycle
  • Main field of study: Medicine
  • Department of Clinical Neuroscience

The course is aimed at those interested in brain imaging methods, and in how these methods can be used to assess the function and structure of the human brain. The course is particularly suitable for those who wishes to include brain imaging in their neuroscience research, medical instrumentation development, or clinical practice.

During the course, you will achieve a good understanding of the methods used to measure human brain function and brain structure within the field of neuroscience. The focus of the course is on magnet resonance imaging (structural and functional MRI), positron emission tomography (PET), electroencephalography (EEG) and magnetoencephalography (MEG) methods.

The course covers the theoretical background to these methods and will give you a good overview of how they are used within research and healthcare. The course also covers how the methods may be combined in multimodal analyzes, and discusses the interplay between development of instrumentation, methods, applications and theory within the brain imaging field.

Information on distance learning

Lectures (36 occasions) as well as the subsequent group discussions with fellow students and the lecturer take place digitally, but are mandatory and are scheduled during daytime, two mornings per week during the course (Tuesdays and Thursdays 8h30-12h00).
