S1544: NeuroImaging: Current Research Methods and the Future State-of-the-Art in Splash Spring 2016 (Apr. 30, 2016)
This course will cover recent advances in neuroimaging, addressing the applications of research tools such as resting-state functional magnetic resonance imaging (R-fMRI), dense-array electroencephalograph (EEG), and Diffusion Tensor Imaging (DTI). We will also focus on how connectivity analyses can be applied to each of these research methodologies. Finally, we will discuss potential state-of-the-art techniques of the future, which are currently under development, including Diffuse Optical Tomography/Imaging (DOT) and nanoparticles for biomedical imaging.

S1412: The Neuroscience of Concussions: Recent Advances in NeuroImaging Methods in Splash Spring 15 (May. 02, 2015)
Concussions, or mild traumatic brain injuries (mTBI) have recently become firmly ingrained in popular consciousness after major controversies involving the NFL and revelations that nearly 15% of veterans returning from conflict zones in the Middle East have suffered a concussion [1]. This course reviews some advances in neuroimaging methods which have greatly increased scientists’ understanding of mTBI, addressing tools such as Diffusion Tensor Imaging (DTI), functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), and quantitative electroencephalogram (qEEG). While the course focuses on the application of these methods to the study of mTBI, the topics discussed may provide useful information for broader areas of neuroscience as well.
