Neuroscience 803 - Magnetic Resonance Imaging

This is a graduate level course and will normally be offered
each September - December term.

This course will next be offered Sept-Dec 2017, and is scheduled for 10:30-12:00, Mondays and Wednesdays each week. Classes start Sept 11th.

Classes will be in Bracken Library room 122, except for the first class on Sept 11th which will be in room 137 (on the main floor near the elevators)

Lectures in class will be supplemented by matching lecture videos that students can watch on their own time as long as they keep up with the topics to be discussed in each class. Class time will be allocated to questions and discussion of the lectures, as well as new lecture material each week. The lectures are also supported with more detail in the course text book.
At the end of the term students will do a term project which consists of designing an MRI acquisition protocol, which will be used to acquire images of a human volunteer during one session in the MRI Facility.

Registering in the course requires permission from the instructor. This is so that I can determine the range of background training spanned by the students taking the course, and can adjust lectures accordingly.

Contact Patrick Stroman if you are interested in taking this course or want more information.
