Connectivity Course: Structural and Functional Brain Connectivity via MRI and fMRI: This is a five-day program on functional and structural connectivity using MRI. The next edition is October 28-November 01, 2019.  (Monday->Friday.) 

The CONN Toolbox: This program is devoted to teaching the use of the CONN Toolbox for analyzing resting state connectivity data. The next program will be April 29 - May 3, 2019 (Monday->Friday).         NOTE: This program is formally full.  If you register after 11:30am EDT 2019Apr01, your name will be placed on a waiting list. Please do NOT make travel plans until you are notified that there is room for you in the program.

fMRI Visiting Fellowship Program: This program provides an in-depth introduction to the field of functional magnetic resonance imaging. The next programs are March 25-29 and Oct 21-25, 2019. (All are Monday->Friday.) 

The Multimodality Short Course:  The 2-week version of this program (held 2007-2016) and the 1-week version (2017) will not be held in 2019.  A one day version, with a different focus, will be held in 2019 (See State-of-the-Art in MultiModality Functional Brain Imaging, below).

State-of-the-Art in MultiModality Functional Brain Imaging (SAMM) is a new 1-day workshop that will be held on Tuesday, May 28, 2019 and again on Tuesday, June 25, 2019. .
