Teaching Material for course 3035: Imaging in neuroscience with a focus on MEG and EEG methods

PhD-Course run on February 5th-9th 2018 at Karolinska Institutet, Sweden

 

Purpose and Aims

The main purpose of the course was to provide the students with a solid understanding of the tools available to analyze brain activity data measured with magnetoencephalography (MEG) and electroencephalography (EEG). The students should develop the ability to critically review results provided by different methods, to select the most adequate tools and experimental designs to answer different questions and to compare their relative advantages.
