Summer Workshop In Neuroimaging
The Multimodal Neuroimaging Training Program (MNTP) at the University of Pittsburgh, in collaboration with Carnegie Mellon University, and with funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH)(grants R90DA023420 and T90DA022761) was developed so that neuroscience students and investigators can learn about and gain experience in the rapidly advancing in vivo imaging fields.
Neuroimaging techniques are capable of probing physiology and function at molecular, cellular and system levels, in animal models and humans. The MNTP teaches underlying principles of these neuroimaging methods, as well as their inherent limitations, applications, and modeling for integrative research. Methodologies include structural magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), functional MRI, positron emission tomography, magnetoencephalography, and optical imaging. To fulfill these aims, MNTP has developed two programs:
1) The Graduate Training Program in Neuroimaging, administered through the Center for the Neural Basis of Cognition (CNBC) Graduate Program.
2) The MNTP Summer Workshop, hosted by the CNBC, and coordinated by Peter Gianaros (University of Pittsburgh) and William Eddy (Carnegie Mellon University).
