GS14 1181: Graduate Neuroanatomy
Fall/annually/1-credit hour course
The Graduate Neuroanatomy course will provide a broad overview of the structure and function of the central nervous system. The general architecture of the nervous system and its functional systems are presented in a series of online exercises. The exercises allow the students to examine brain anatomy at a detailed view of the regional anatomy of the brain and spinal cord. MRIs of brain anatomy, as commonly presented in the scientific literature, will be presented using a computerized learning system.
Here are slides presented in June 2012 at the Institute of Psychology of the Chinese Academy of Sciences
Here are slides presented for Medical Neuroscience in 2012

AFNI/fMRI Short Course
Dr. Bob Cox, the Director of the Scientific and Statistical Computing Core at the National Institute of Mental Health Intramural Research Program will be visiting Houston on October 4-8, 2010. Together with his staff, Dr. Cox will teach a 5-day course on fMRI data analysis with the AFNI software package. Click for more information on the short course
Introduction to fMRI
The main graduate course offered by Dr. Beauchamp is titled "Introduction to fMRI". The web page for students in this course to submit assignments and receive information about the course is https://owlspace-ccm.rice.edu/portal For 2012 - 2013, this course will be offered on Monday afternoons from 2 pm to 5 pm in UT MSB B.100 The first class will be Monday September 10 and the last class will be Monday December 10th. There will be no class on October 15th (Society for Neuroscience annual meeting).
The textbook for this course is "Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging", 2nd edition, by Huettel, Song and McCarthy. The text may be ordered from Amazon http://www.amazon.com/Functional-Magnetic-Resonance-Imaging-Second/dp/0878932860 or it is available at the UT bookstore at a 10% discount.
The course is taught in even years only on Tuesdays from 2 pm to 5 pm in UT MSB B.645.
In 2010, the first class will be Tuesday Aug 31 and the last class will be Tuesday December 7th. There will be no class on October 5th (AFNI workshop), November 16th (Society for Neuroscience annual meeting) or Tuesday November 23rd (Thanksgiving).
Other Courses and Lectures
A second course offered by Dr. Beauchamp is titled "Advanced Seminars in Neuroimaging". This is an advanced course for students who have already taken Introduction to fMRI.
