Professor Daichi Nozaki from the Graduate School of Education at University of Tokyo will give a talk entitled "Context-dependent motor memories in humans: Function, implementation, and manipulation"
This PhD course provides a systematic and comprehensive overview over current brain stimulation techniques, highlighting their neuroscientific and therapeutic potential. The students will be introduced to the various stimulation techniques (e.g. optogenetics, transcranial magnetic stimulation, transcranial current stimulation, deep-brain stimulation) and will gain in-depth knowledge about the basic biophysical mechanisms and the most commonly used neuroscientific and therapeutic stimulation techniques. Theoretical lectures will be complemented by practical sessions and demonstrations. The course will consist of introductory lectures in the morning (three to four lectures per day), followed by a student presentation of the lecture highlights and supervised practical exercises and demonstrations based on different brain stimulation techniques in the afternoon.
On Friday, Jan. 6th at 9am, Marc Tittgemeyer (Head of Research Group for Translational Neurocircuitry, Max Planck Institute for Metabolism Research, Cologne) will give a talk with the title "Circuit-level models of homeostatic mechanisms for food intake and its modulation by reward” in the DRCMR conference room.
Professor Peter Krustup, University of Southern Denmark will give a presentation entitled "Fitness and health effects of football for participants across the lifespan"
The aim of the course is to provide a basis for understanding MRI measurements, pitfalls and literature. The course covers introductory MRI acquisition in a series of ~6 weekly interactive lectures starting November 4th, 2016, and running almost weekly Fridays 13:15 to 15:45 until December 16th 2016. The lectures cover MR basics, acquisition methods and parameters with a focus on understanding. Active participation is required.
The course starts at a level requiring little or no MR experience, and a technical background is not required. The target audience is employees and students at the MR department but the course is open and free for external participants. DRCMR employees, students and co-workers are given priority if the number of participants is limited due to space constraints. Participation is free but registration is required.
