We are pleased to announce the
HCP Course: "Exploring the Human Connectome"
to be held July 8 – 12, 2019 at the University Place Hotel and Conference
Center <https://www.uplacehotel.com/> at Portland State University in
Portland, Oregon, USA.
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 those interested in:

   - using HCP-style data currently available from the young adult HCP and HCP
   Lifespan (Development and Aging) projects
   - acquiring and analyzing HCP-style imaging and behavioral data at your
   own institution
   - processing your own non-HCP data (including legacy 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 multi-modal 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 longitudinal data and Connectomes Related to Human Disease projects)
   - learning how to obtain data from the NIMH Data Archive (NDA) and setup
   processing in an Amazon Web Services (AWS) environment

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, non-profit 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.
