Neuroimaging for Speech and Hearing Research
SAR SH 620
In this course, students will learn the scientific and technical foundations of magnetic resonance imaging and their application to cognitive neuroscience research in speech, language, and hearing. Topics include acquisition of the MRI signal and its neuroanatomical and neurophysiological bases, the design of MRI experiments to study brain structure and function, and the statistical analysis of structural and functional MRI data. Through lectures, readings, and hands-on laboratory exercises using standard computational software for human neuroimaging, students will explore contemporary application of MRI techniques and gain practical experience acquiring and analyzing MRI data.
