SPM M/EEG course 2018

The dates of the annual SPM course for MEG/EEG have been announced! Read the message from Hayriye Cagnan below:

The course will present instruction on the analysis of MEG and EEG data. The first two days will combine theoretical presentations with practical demonstrations of the different data analysis methods implemented in SPM. On the last day participants will have the opportunity to work on SPM tutorial data sets under the supervision of the course faculty. We also invite students to bring their own data for analysis.

The course is suitable for both beginners and more advanced users. The topics that will be covered range from pre-processing and statistical analysis to source localization and dynamic causal modelling. The program is listed below.

Available places are limited so please register as early as possible if you would like to attend! For any administrative questions, please contact Ms Kamlyn Ramikssoon (k.ramkissoon@ucl.ac.uk).
