The Program

This is a new, one day workshop.  The day begins with a brief (first 1/2 of the morning), systematic review a collection of modalities (MRI, fMRI, PET, TMS, EEG, MEG, NIRS and possibly others) followed by a day of short presentations by experts in each modality describing some of the latest advances and focusing on one or two example applications.  There will be time to discuss each of these specific applications and general advances in the field.  The idea is to have a forum at which a collection of experts will be available for discussion about a wide range of applications of multimodality functional brain imaging.

The workshops will run all day on Tuesday, May 28 (about 10 days before the annual Organization for Human Brain Mapping Conference, which in 2019 will be held in ROME Italy between June 9 and 13), and again on Tuesday June 25 (about 10 days after that meeting).  While not affiliated with OHBM in any way, part of the purpose is (on May 28) to orient and prepare people for that kind of meeting; and part of the purpose (on June 25) is to review some of the highlights of that meeting in this context.


When & Where: This 1-day program will be held at the Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging in Charlestown, Massachusetts, a part of the Massachusetts General Hospital.   The May 28 and June 25 workshops will be in held in Building 114 16th Street in Charlestown, MA (a part of Boston).  Parking is available (albeit expensive) in the 9-story parking garage directly across from the entrance to 114 16th Street.

Funding and Registration Fees

This program, like the fMRI Visiting Fellowship Program, is sponsored in part by the Athinoula A Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging, which provides some faculty, space, and various imaging resources. The remainder of the funding is provided by participant tuition. This tuition will be: US$300 for regular participants; $250 for post-doctoral fellows; and US$200 for graduate students. 


This is a one day workshop, so most participants will not require overnight accommodations, but information regarding recommended and alternative accommodations can be found here.
