Program 2012

February 7
Helene Van Ettinger-Veenstra, MSc

Language Impairment in Epilepsy — FMRI Investigations

Discussion Topics:
• Epilepsy patients show language impairment, but is the level of impairment of importance?
• Does (lack of) correlation between impairment and education, epilepsy onset/duration, and Topiramate treatment explain anything in small groups (< 30 patients)?
• Are altered activation patterns in right hemisphere in epilepsy related to language problems or to cognitive impairment?

March 6
Michael Chappell, PhD

'Functional Connectivity’ versus ‘Effective Connectivity’ in fMRI: Journal Club

May 8
Anders Eklund, MSc

Does Parametric fMRI Analysis with SPM Yield Valid Results? - An Empirical Study of 1484 Rest Datasets

Discussion Topics:
• Are the assumptions for parametric fMRI analysis appropriate?
• How does factors such as repetition time, smoothing and paradigm design affect the parametric analysis?
• Can non-parametric approaches be better than parametric approaches?

June 6
Bertil Wegmann, PhD

fMRI: What is Bayesian inference and how can it be used in brain research?

Discussion Topics:
• What is ‘Bayesian inference’ and how does it differ from ‘frequentist inference’?
• How can Bayesian inference be implemented in fMRI?
• How can information about brain connectivity be used as a spatial prior?
