Cognitive Science 260 - Winter 2016

Introduction to Diffusion Tensor Imaging

Course Overview:

Diffusion Tensor Imaging (DTI) is a new and emerging technique that is finding applicability in a broad range of disciplines. This course will be the first at UCSD to provide a comprehensive introduction to DTI. Participants will gain an understanding of the physical principles underlying DTI, as well as theoretical and practical considerations in research design. The course will provide practical tools for acquisition and analysis of DTI data so that participants will be better prepared to critique, design, and conduct DTI studies, appreciate the limitations of current technology, and know the options for implementing advanced measurement techniques.

Location: Cognitive Science Building, Room 272
