Ultra high resolution functional imaging of human learning

Thursday, May 18, 2017 - 5:45pm

We are studying the basis of high level learning, using ultra high field functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to study how shape processing areas of the cerebral cortex change when subjects develop perceptual expertise. The interested student will gain experience with the collection of high resolution fMRI data, learn to use of standard toolkits and custom MATLAB code to analyze imaging data, and have the opportunity to work with vision scientists and MRI physicists at the world renowned University of Minnesota Center for Magnetic Resonance Imaging.
