FULL DAY

About

Rapid advances in structural and functional neuroimaging, together with the rise of network analytical tools, provide unprecedented possibilities to characterize the brain in autism. In this workshop we will bring together emerging and established scientists to discuss cutting-edge neuroimagingapplications in the study of autism and provide hands-on guidance for their implementation.

The first part of the day will consist of lectures from outstanding junior and senior researchers and includes an interactive poster session. In the afternoon, experts will lead practical hands-on sessions aimed at teaching how to optimally implement some of the advanced analyses presented during the course of the workshop.

The morning session will be hosted at The Neuro, a site with a rich history of neuroscience and neuroimaging excellence. In the afternoon, participants can join the hands-on educational sessions at the Notman House, a technology hub in walking distance from The Neuro that provides an ideal space for easy and plentiful interactions.
