International Symposium on Brain Structure and Function  
Monday, July 1, 2024 12:00 AM - Tuesday, July 2, 2024 12:00 AM
Okazaki, Japan

This symposium aims to provide opportunities for discussing structure-function relationship in the brain, which is a central topic in the the international journal Brain Structure and Function by inviting international speakers who are actively doing scientific research on the structure-function relationship of the brain. The meeting will be arranged in a hybrid format for allowing broader discussion. We plan to also open an abstract submission for those who wish to present their own work in the poster session.

COGNESTIC - Cognitive Neuroimaging Skills Training In Cambridge  
Monday, September 16, 2024 9:00 AM UTC (UTC) - Friday, September 27, 2024 5:00 PM UTC (UTC)
Cambridge, United Kingdom

The two-week Cognitive Neuroimaging Skills Training In Cambridge (COGNESTIC) summer school will provide researchers with training in state-of-the-art methods for open neuroimaging analysis and related methods, focusing on MRI, fMRI and EEG/MEG. We will use a variety of open-source software and data formats (e.g. DiPy, Nilearn, MNE-Python, FSL, Freesurfer, fMRIprep, BIDS) and software packages to demonstrate and explain reproducible analysis pipelines for neuroimaging data, mostly based on Python. The sessions will provide theory and practical demonstrations of these analysis pipelines, with opportunities for attendees to practice them hands-on. We will supply extensive online materials on the theoretical background of the methods in advance, e.g. in bespoke videos created by our tutors. Special guest lectures by principal investigators will showcase the application of neuroimaging methods in cognitive and clinical neuroscience. We will also offer tours of the CBU’s lab facilities with an opportunity to discuss best practice in data acquisition. There will be ample time for attendees to interact with tutors and fellow attendees. The event is aimed at researchers who are starting or are planning to start their own neuroimaging research. Basic knowledge of neuroimaging techniques and coding would be useful but is not essential.

The registration fee for COGNESTIC 2024 is £900. Registration deadline is 31 July 2024. The fee will include lunches, refreshments and two social events, but not accommodation and dinners. We offer a discount of 50% to attendees from UNESCO low and lower-middle income countries.
