Neuroimaging Techniques

Neuroimaging Techniques

This is an intensive and comprehensive laboratory-oriented course focusing on applying imaging techniques to neuroscience research. The objective of this imaging course is to gain exposure to modern imaging tools from principle optics to applications in modern neuroscience.


January 11 – January 20, 2016


Max Planck Florida Institute for Neuroscience


The course has lectures in the morning and laboratory sessions in the afternoon and evening. For more information visit the original website or have a look at the flyer.
