Seattle: June 21, 2013
HBM 2013 satellite meeting, full-day Brainstorm workshop. Conference link
Where: Magnuson Health Sciences Center T (HST), Room T-739
University of Washington, Seattle: map of the campus.
When: Friday, June 21, 8am-6pm
Organizers: Rey Ramirez (UW), Sylvain Baillet (MNI, McGill)
Instructors: Francois Tadel (MNI, McGill), John Mosher (Cleveland Clinic)
Target audience: Neuroscientists, psychologists, clinicians, engineers, etc. using MEG or EEG as advanced research tools. Students, post-docs, staff, faculty interested in learning a new academic software tool for MEG and EEG data analysis, with an emphasis on source imaging, spectral decompositions and functional connectivity metrics.
The participants are required to bring a laptop (an external mouse will add to your comfort). In order to make the session as efficient as possible, we ask all the attendees to download, install and test the software and sample dataset on their laptops prior to the workshop.
Please read carefully the following instructions:
