Dear all,

We are pleased to announce that our annual SPM course for MEG/EEG will
take place this year from Monday May 7 to Wednesday May 9 2018.

Hosted by University College London, the course will be held at Queen
Square (UK).

The course will present instruction on the analysis of MEG and EEG
data. The first two days will combine theoretical presentations with
practical demonstrations of the different data analysis methods
implemented in SPM. On the last day participants will have the
opportunity to work on SPM tutorial data sets under the supervision of
the course faculty. We also invite students to bring their own data
for analysis.

The course is suitable for both beginners and more advanced users. The
topics that will be covered range from pre-processing and statistical
analysis to source localization and dynamic causal modelling. The
program is listed below.

Registration is now open. For full details see:


where you can also register.

Available places are limited so please register as early as possible
if you would like to attend! For any administrative questions, please
contact Ms Kamlyn Ramikssoon (k.ramkissoon at ucl.ac.uk)
