We are pleased to announce the *2017 HCP Course: "Exploring the Human
Connectome"*
<https://store.humanconnectome.org/courses/2017/exploring-the-human-connectome.php>,
to be held *June 19 – 23, 2017* at the University of British Columbia (UBC)
<http://ubcconferences.com/>, in Vancouver, BC, Canada. This is the week
before the Organization of Human Brain Mapping (OHBM) annual meeting
<http://www.humanbrainmapping.org/i4a/pages/index.cfm?pageID=3734> to be
held in downtown Vancouver (about 8 miles away from UBC) June 25-29.
This 5-day intensive course will provide training in acquisition,
processing, analysis and visualization of whole brain imaging and
behavioral data using methods and informatics tools developed by the
WU-Minn-Oxford Human Connectome Project (HCP) consortium.

The course is designed for investigators who are interested in:

   - using data collected and distributed from the HCP young adult study
   - acquiring and analyzing HCP-style imaging and behavioral data at your
   own institution
   - processing your own non-HCP data using HCP pipelines and methods
   - using Connectome Workbench
   <https://www.humanconnectome.org/software/connectome-workbench.html> tools
   and sharing data using the BALSA <https://balsa.wustl.edu/> imaging
   database
   - learning HCP multimodal neuroimaging analysis methods, including those
   that combine MEG and MRI data
   - exploring the HCP MMP 1.0
   <http://humanconnectome.org/about/pressroom/nature-article-cortical-brain-maps-at-the-highest-resolution-to-date/>
    multimodal parcellation brain map and learning about how it can be used
   in your analyses
   - positioning yourself to capitalize on HCP-style data being distributed
   by the Connectome Coordinating Facility (CCF) from forthcoming large-scale
   projects (e.g., Lifespan HCP development and aging and Connectomes
   Related to Human Disease projects)


Participants will learn how to acquire, analyze, visualize, and interpret
data from four major MR modalities (structural MR, resting-state fMRI,
diffusion imaging, task-evoked fMRI) plus magnetoencephalography (MEG) and
extensive behavioral data.  Lectures and labs will provide grounding in
neurobiological as well as methodological issues involved in interpreting
multimodal data, and will span the range from single-voxel/vertex to brain
network analysis approaches.

The course is open to students, postdocs, faculty, and industry
participants.  The course is aimed at both new and current users of HCP
data, methods, and tools, and will cover both basic and advanced topics.
Prior experience in human neuroimaging or in computational analysis of
brain networks is desirable, preferably including some familiarity with FSL
<https://fsl.fmrib.ox.ac.uk/fsl/fslwiki> and Freesurfer
<https://surfer.nmr.mgh.harvard.edu/> software.
