This course will introduce the fundamental methods for the analysis of functional MRI, and electrophysiological (i.e. EEG and MEG) data.

The goal is to provide the students with the core ideas necessary to understand current data analysis methods used in the literature from a critical point of view, and provide sufficient hands-on experience on relevant software packages that implement them. The course is divided into three sections. The first part will consist of hands-on sessions covering the essentials of MRI data processing, using a standard neuroimaging software packages. There will be practical sessions on the analysis of electrophysiological data, mainly using BrainVision Analyzer and EEGlab.

In addition, the course will describe the basic theoretical background of the most common methods for analysis of functional MRI data, such as the general linear model and independent component analysis, the main software packages (AFNI, FSL), also with an introduction to multivariate pattern analyses (MVPA).
