SAMSI Summer Program Gives In-Depth View of Neuroimaging Data Analysis
The Statistical and Applied Mathematical Sciences Institute (SAMSI) will hold a summer program on Neuroimaging Data Analysis (NDA) June 4–14 in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina.
This two-week workshop will begin with five days of training courses focused on structural and functional neuroimaging data analysis—taught by leading researchers in the field—to bring everyone up to speed on currently used methodology. The second week will combine working groups held in the afternoons with a workshop held in the mornings.
Twenty invited speakers from the fields of statistics, computer science, mathematics, biomedical engineering, radiology, psychiatry, psychology, and neuroscience will address major areas and cutting-edge research in NDA. There also will also be a poster session allowing participants to present their ideas.
NDA is aimed at encompassing a broad array of imaging, mathematical, and statistical methods for the analysis of neuroimaging data. It is used to extract pertinent information from imperfect and noisy images from the brain.
The NDA program addresses the need to analyze high-dimensional, correlated, and complex neuroimaging data, as well as clinical and genetic data obtained from various cross-sectional and clustered neuroimaging studies. The structural, neurochemical, and functional neuroimaging modalities include computed axial tomography (CT), diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS), positron emission tomography (PET), single photon emission tomography (SPECT), electroencephalography (EEG), and magnetoencephalography (EMG), among many others.
