The CBI Pre-Clinical Imaging meeting is held once a month in BEB 201 and provides a forum for in depth discussions to address advanced techniques in imaging research and to highlight trends in the field. The first portion of the meeting is dedicated to a discussion of CBI equipment and administrative issues, and the remainder of the meeting typically consists of a presentation emphasizing some of our innovative imaging users’ research.
Upcoming Pre-Clinical Imaging Meeting:
Tuesday, May 6, 2014: 12-1pm (BEB 201)
Nuts and Bolts
The CBI Nuts & Bolts Users Group meets twice a month in BEB 201 and provides a forum for in depth discussions by researchers about imaging, statistical methods, data analysis techniques and administrative issues. The first portion of the meeting is dedicated to discussion of CBI equipment and administrative issues, and the remainder of the meeting typically consists of a presentation of a discussion topic chosen by the group. Typical discussion topics include details of image formation, multiple compartment connections, functional versus effective connectivity, arterial spin labeling, appropriateness of model fitting, distribution of functional imaging residuals and resting state network analysis.
Upcoming Nuts and Bolts Meetings:
Tuesday, April 8, 2014: 11-12pm (BEB 201)
Tuesday, April 22, 2014: 11-12pm (BEB 201)
CBI study groups are open to everyone and provide in-depth discussions of ongoing research, analysis, and current issues in the field of imaging.

Introduction to MATLAB and MATLAB Programming Courses
The CBI is now offering a non-credit seminar series.
Time: Wednesday (2pm) and Friday (9am)
(Because of limited seating, 2 sections will be offered on Wednesday at 2:00pm and Friday at 9:00am. There is a limit of 10 attendees per section. 8-10 sessions (possibly more, depending on the level of interest) will be offered, each between 60-90 minutes long.)
Sessions will start the week of January 13, 2014.
Develop a basic working knowledge of MATLAB (notation, syntax, built-in functions).
Learn to use the command line (MATLAB as a calculator).
Learn to develop scripts and functions.
Learn basic programming skills.
Learn to use the debugger to troubleshoot scripts and functions.
Generate 2D and 3D data plots.
Read, write and manipulate numeric data (text files, binary files, Excel).
Read, write, manipulate and display image data.
** No prior programming or MATLAB experience is assumed or required.
If you would like to attend or if you have any questions, please contact Dr. Mark Van Horn (firstname.lastname@example.org).
