PSYCH 8910 & CSC 8910
Spring Semester, 2022
Course Description/Syllabus: This graduate-level course will provide an overview of approaches to study functional (network) connectivity in functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) data and will cover a variety of topics including brain networks/connectome, dynamic connectivity, and multimodal data fusion. FMRI is a widely-used brain imaging technique which produces a series of images which are sensitive to localized changes in blood oxygenation which occur in the brain intrinsically and are modulated while performing a task. We will briefly review the basics of MRI and the fMRI signal as well as preprocessing. Most of the course will focus on the analysis of the time series data produced by functional magnetic resonance imaging of the brain with various approaches including linear modeling, seed-based functional connectivity, and blind source separation tools, such as independent component analysis. We will also cover methods that can be used to combine fMRI data with other imaging modalities such as structural MRI or EEG, in a joint analysis, i.e., multimodal data fusion. Several Matlab-based software packages will be used in the projects order to demonstrate the concepts and learn how to read in and manipulate the data.
