Biomedical imaging has the potential to transform many disciplines. Imaging is necessarily an interdisciplinary collaboration, and for this reason training at both the pre-doctoral and post-doctoral levels needs to transcend traditional departmental boundaries. To serve this need, faculty from the CFMRI, in collaboration with other colleagues at UCSD, have developed the following courses:
|SOMI 276A||fMRI Foundations||Drs. David Dubowitz, Richard Buxton, Frank Haist|
|SOMI 276B||fMRI Design and Analysis||Drs. Amanda Bischoff-Grethe, Richard Buxton, David Dubowitz, Frank Haist,|
|SOMI 276C||fMRI Advanced Topics||Dr. Richard Buxton|
|BENG 280A||Principles of Biomedical Imaging||Dr. Thomas Liu|
|BENG 278||Magnetic Resonance Imaging Laboratory||Dr. Eric Wong|
|COGSCI 260||Introduction to Diffusion Tensor Imaging||Dr. Lawrence Frank|
In addition to the formal courses, Dr. Richard Buxton's book Introduction to Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging: Principles and Techniques (Cambridge University Press, 2nd edition 2009) provides a useful guide to the field for both experienced and novice fMRI investigators.
