We are pleased to announce the *2018 HCP Course: "Exploring the Human
to be held *June 25 – 29, 2018* at the Blavatnik School of Government
<https://www.bsg.ox.ac.uk/partner/contact-us>, at the University of Oxford
<http://www.ox.ac.uk/>, in Oxford, UK.
This 5-day intensive course will provide training in acquisition,
processing, analysis and visualization of whole brain imaging and
behavioral data using methods and tools developed by the WU-Minn-Oxford Human
Connectome Project (HCP) consortium.

The course is designed for investigators interested in:

   - using HCP-style data distributed by the Connectome Coordinating
   Facility (CCF) from the young adult (original) HCP and forthcoming projects
   - 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
   - learning HCP multimodal neuroimaging analysis methods, including those
   that combine MEG and MRI data
   - positioning yourself to capitalize on HCP-style data forthcoming from
   large-scale projects currently collecting data (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.

For more info and to register visit the HCP Course 2018 website
New this year is the opportunity to add 6 nights of bed and
breakfast accommodation (Sun June 24 - Fri June 29) at nearby Worcester
College to your registration at a group, taxes included rate.
If you have any questions, please contact us at: hcpcourse at humanconnectome.

We look forward to seeing you in Oxford!
