CBI Lectures - Nuts & Bolts
The CBI Nuts & Bolts Users Group meets twice a month in BEB 201 and provides a forum for in-depth discussions by researchers about imaging, statistical methods, data analysis techniques, and administrative issues. The first portion of the meeting is dedicated to discussion of CBI equipment and administrative issues, and the remainder of the meeting typically consists of a presentation of a discussion topic chosen by the group. Typical discussion topics include details of image formation, multiple compartment connections, functional versus effective connectivity, arterial spin labeling, appropriateness of model fitting, distribution of functional imaging residuals, and resting state network analysis.
