fMRI Decoding: Reading Minds Using Brain Scans
Sample reading list:
See instructor for complete list
Students will be responsible for weekly problem sets and lab reports. For the final project, students will be given a complex real-world dataset (brain scans from people watching a movie) and they will be asked to decode what is happening in the movie based on the brain data.
Other Exam - 30%
Lab Reports - 20%
Class/Precept Participation - 10%
Problem set(s) - 40%
Open to Juniors and Seniors Only.
Prerequisites and Restrictions:
All students should have prior knowledge of computer programming (e.g., COS 126). Prior experience with Matlab is extremely useful but not strictly necessary. Additionally, students should EITHER have prior experience with fMRI research and cognitive neuroscience (e.g., from a course like PSY 259 or PSY 416) OR they should have prior experience with pattern classification and data mining methods (from a course like COS 402 or COS 424). Students who are unsure whether they have appropriate background for the course should contact the professors..
We intend for this course to be accessible to advanced undergraduate students coming from Neuroscience, Psychology and Engineering. A large part of the course will be team-based work where the teams are composed of both NEU/PSY and Engineering students. Seniors will be given preference but qualified juniors will be allowed also.
