We are pleased to announce the 2015 HCP Course:
nectome.php> "Exploring the Human Connectome", to be held June 8-12 at the
Marriott Resort Waikiki Beach
<http://www.marriott.com/hotels/travel/hnlmc/?mktcmp=w_regionsite_hnlmc_x> ,
in Honolulu, Hawaii, USA. 

This 5-day intensive course will provide training in the acquisition,
analysis and visualization of imaging and behavioral data from the Human
Connectome Project (HCP) using methods and informatics tools developed by
the WU-Minn HCP consortium <http://humanconnectome.org/>  plus data made
freely available to the neuroscience community.  

The course is designed for investigators who are interested in:

*	using data being collected and distributed by HCP
*	acquiring and analyzing HCP-style imaging and behavioral data at
your own institution
*	processing your own non-HCP imaging data using HCP pipelines and
*	learning to use Connectome Workbench
<http://humanconnectome.org/software/connectome-workbench.html>  tools and
the CIFTI <http://www.nitrc.org/projects/cifti/>  connectivity data format
*	learning HCP multi-modal neuroimaging analysis methods, including
those that combine MEG and MRI data
*	positioning yourself to capitalize on HCP-style data from
forthcoming large-scale projects (e.g., Lifespan HCP and Connectomes Related
to Human Disease)

Participants will learn how to acquire, analyze, visualize, and interpret
data from resting-state and task-evoked magnetoencephalography (MEG), four
major MR modalities (structural MR, resting-state fMRI, diffusion imaging,
task-evoked fMRI), plus extensive behavioral data.  Lectures and labs will
provide grounding in neurobiological as well as methodological issues
involved in interpreting multimodal data, and will span the range from
single-voxel/vertex to brain network analysis approaches.

The course is open to graduate students, postdocs, faculty, and industry
participants.  The course is aimed at both new and existing users of HCP
data, methods, and tools, and will cover both basic and advanced topics.
Prior experience in human neuroimaging or in computational analysis of brain
networks is desirable, preferably including familiarity with FSL and
Freesurfer software.

We hope to see you in Hawaii!
