The Cognitive Neuroscience Skills Training In Cambridge (COGNESTIC) will provide researchers with training in state-of-the-art methods for neuroimaging and neurostimulation. It will be held at the MRC Cognition & Brain sciences Unit (CBU), University of Cambridge.
Our tutors are experts using and developing MRI, fMRI, EEG/MEG and TMS analysis methods, as well as in statistical methods and open science. Our programme will focus on demos of neuroimaging methods, with pre-recorded lectures on the background theory being made available in advance.
Additional tours will be offered of the CBU’s facilities to learn tips about data acquisition, as well as special guest lectures on applications to cognitive and clinical neuroscience. There will also be ample time for participants to mingle with tutors and attendees.
The course will focus on principles of methods that are relevant to cognitive neuroscientists, and will use open source software packages (but it is not a course on a particular software). Basic coding skills in Matlab and/or Python are desirable but not required. Attendees can bring their own laptops to follow the demos (after downloading datasets and software in advance), but this is not required.
We invite applications from researchers of all relevant disciplines, but spaces are limited. You are only guaranteed a place if you pre-registered your interest with the organisers and received this link from them.
Attendance fee is £200, which will include sandwich lunches and light refreshments but no accommodation.
