In recent times, thanks to global efforts such as 1000 Functional Connectomes Project (FCP), the Autism Brain Imaging Data Exchange (ABIDE), Alzheimer's Disease Neuroimaging Initiative (ADNI), and the Cambridge Centre for Ageing and Neuroscience (Cam-CAN) project, large neuroimaging data repositories and toolkits have been created and are available for public access. There is an exciting possibility now for posing important and intriguing questions in cognitive neuroscience related to the brain structure and function and test them on these data sets. The five-day summer school is aimed at creating awareness and imparting basic training to take advantage of this opportunity.
The goal of the summer school is to cover applications of the statistical and machine learning approaches in the analysis of neuroimaging data comprising both structural and functional images and appreciate the related cognitive neuroscience research. The expected outcomes of the five-day summer school are gaining familiarity with neuroimaging as a tool for Cognitive Neuroscience investigation, exposure to the data processing pipeline and appreciation of the recent advances and open research questions in the domain of neuroimaging.
