Neuroscience Workshop

June 3, 2018 (9am – 1pm)

What kinds of questions can neural methods answer?

Can I use fMRI to test my behavioral finding?

What do those brain maps even mean?

Workshop Leaders:

Uma Karmarkar, UC San Diego

Vinod Venkatraman, Temple University


Stick around after ISDN 2018 for a half-day workshop aimed to help business students and researchers understand and explore the use of neuroscience methodologies for their own topics of interest. This event will provide an interactive forum for up to 25-30 junior researchers and scholars to meet, learn, and discuss designing effective neuroscience studies, with the goal of encouraging ongoing future discussions and collaborations.

The workshop will begin with an introduction to the methods in cognitive neuroscience, with specific emphasis on fMRI. This will include the fundamentals of fMRI signal, design principles and limitations, data analyses and interpretation, and recent trends and developments. Later breakout groups will let participants discuss more specific research questions and ideas with experienced neuroscience faculty.
