Kathy Do, a graduate student in Developmental Psychology, was awarded a National Institutes of Health Fellowship in order to attend the 2017 Training Course in fMRI at University of Michigan.
The University of Michigan offers a two week intensive course to train attendees on the motivation for using functional magnetic resonance imaging, the physics that underlies the technique, the design of experiments, the acquisition of data, the analysis of those data, and the interpretation of brain activations that result. The course is intended for potential users of the technique, including graduate and postdoctoral students, as well as established biomedical researchers who wish to incorporate this technique into their work. Via the sponsorship of a grant from the National Institutes of Health, the course enrolls 25 students from outside the University of Michigan and supports their travel and subsistence.
Kathy will attend the course from August 7 – 18, 2017 in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
