fMRI Methods Journal Club

One of our goals at BIAC for 2013 was to increase discussions and collaboration between affiliate labs. After discussions with several neuroimaging researchers in BIAC and CCN, we decided to organize a fMRI Methods Journal Club.

For this fall, we will be focusing on high-resolution imaging and associated analysis for brain activation and connectivity. We will have the first 3 talks focus on this, and the second 3 talks' topics will be determined as we continue into the fall semester.

If you have any questions or would like more information, please contact Kate McCormick (

2013 Spring

One of our goals at BIAC for 2013 was to increase discussions and collaboration between affiliate labs. fMRI Methods Journal Club's participating labs have the opportunity to present interesting journal articles, discuss some of the newer methods related to our research here at Duke, and make an effort/plan to implement some of them. General topics to be discussed, include: DTI, uses for resting state analyses, physiological measures and de-noising the data, real-time fMRI, MVPA — just to name a few.
