FSL Mini Course, Dunedin, 18-22 February 2019

This intensive 5-day course covers both the theory and practice of functional and structural brain image analysis. Background concepts and the practicalities of analyses are taught in detailed lectures; these are interleaved with hands-on practical sessions where attendees learn how to carry out analysis for themselves on real data. After completing the course, attendees should be able to analyse their own FMRI and MRI data sets.

This Dunedin Mini course includes the majority of the material included in the standard FSL course, covering functional, structural, diffusion and resting state MRI analysis. We hope that the location and the substantially reduced registration fee (£400 for students and £600 for postdocs) provides a unique opportunity for ANS members to attend the course. Please find more information about the Dunedin FSL Course, including the link for registration, on our website: If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us on: This email address is being protected from spambots.
