The Human Connectome Project (HCP) is pleased to announce the 2016 HCP
Course: “Exploring the Human Connectome”
to be held August 28-September 1 (Sunday-Thursday) at the Joseph B. Martin
Conference Center <http://www.theconfcenter.hms.harvard.edu/> at Harvard
Medical School, in Boston, Massachusetts, USA.

This 5-day intensive course will provide training in the acquisition,
analysis and visualization of whole-brain imaging and behavioral data from
the Human Connectome Project (HCP) using methods and informatics tools
developed by the WU-Minn HCP consortium 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
*processing your own non-HCP imaging data using HCP pipelines and methods
*learning to use Connectome Workbench tools and the CIFTI connectivity data
*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

Participants will learn how to acquire, analyze, visualize, and interpret
data from four major MR modalities (structural MR, resting-state fMRI,
diffusion imaging, task-evoked fMRI) plus magnetoencephalography (MEG) and
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 Bah-ston!
