Fall Course Offerings

NIIN 500 Neuroimaging and Systems Neuroscience
Credits: 3; Semester: Fall
This course will provide a detailed overview of elemental neuroanatomy and brain systems with an emphasis on a neuroimaging perspective in the human and mouse. Examples from clinical cases and their consequences on behavior will be explored.
Location: Hastings Auditorium in the Hoffman building at HSC

NIIN 510 Fundamentals of Human Neuroimaging
Credits: 3; Semester: Fall
Survey of anatomical and functional neuroimaging approaches and their use to explore the healthy as well as diseased human brain.
Location: Hastings Auditorium in the Hoffman building at HSC

NIIN 520 Experimental Design for Neuroimaging
Credits: 3; Semester: Fall
An examination of study design approaches for experimental and clinical neuroimaging investigation. Topics on how to develop rigorous experiments to test theories of cognitive and clinical neuroscience.
Location: Hastings Auditorium in the Hoffman building at HSC

NIIN 530 Neuroimaging Data Acquisition with Magnetic Resonance Imaging
Credits: 3; Semester: Fall
This course introduces the various approaches which can be used to image the living brain using MR-based techniques. The course covers neuroimaging scanning technologies, pulse sequence design, and sources of image artifact.
Location: Hastings Auditorium in the Hoffman building at HSC

NIIN 597 Current Topics in Neuroimaging Informatics
Credits: 1; Semester: Fall
Leading researchers in the areas of basic and clinical brain imaging, computational methods, and
Location: Hastings Auditorium in the Hoffman building at HSC


Spring Course Offerings

NIIN 540 Neuroimaging Data Processing Methods
Credits: 3; Semester: Spring
A comprehensive investigation of data processing methods, software strategies, and workflow design and execution methodologies.
Location: Hastings Auditorium in the Hoffman building at HSC

NIIN 550 Computational Modeling in Neuroimaging
Credits: 3; Semester: Spring
Lectures addressing the current neuroinformatics approaches to large-scale data representations, mining, and visualization in brain imaging. Applications in clinical samples will be presented and discussed.
Location: Hastings Auditorium in the Hoffman building at HSC

NIIN 560 Brain Architecture and Neuroanatomic Exploratory Techniques in Animal Models
Credits: 3; Semester: Spring
Introduction to basic theories and methodological approaches to neuroanatomy in animal models including histology, microscopy, behavioral investigations, and neuroinformatics. Locations: Hastings Auditorium in the Hoffman building (lecture) & McKibben Addition 346 (lab) at HSC

NIIN 570 Neuroimaging Genetics
Credits: 3; Semester: Spring
Lectures on human genetics and epigenetics. We discuss how applying these concepts to brain imaging advances our understanding of healthy development and neurological disease. The class emphasizes critical thinking applied both to designing neuroimaging genetics studies and to assessing neuroimaging genetics literature.
Location: Hastings Auditorium in the Hoffman building at HSC

NIIN 598 Neuroimaging and Informatics External Speaker Seminar Series
Credits: 1; Semester: Spring
Reading and discussion of recent papers by the visiting speaker and attendance at the speaker’s seminar.
Location: Hastings Auditorium in the Hoffman building at HSC
