Workshop: Estimating Effects and Correlations in Neuroimaging Data
July 15th, 2009, 12-5pm
This workshop is part of the Department of Statistics special focus series on Statistical Methods in Neuroscience.
In recent months two high profile articles have been published
(Vul et al., Perspectives on Psychological Science and Kriegeskorte
et al, Nature Neuroscience) which have highlighted methodological
problems in the analysis of neuroimaging data.
The goal of the workshop is to discuss appropriate ways to test
for effects and correlations in neuroimaging data and to have a
productive discussion about what the results mean and how
should they be interpreted. We hope to have a lively debate
about the appropriate manner in which analysis should proceed.
The workshop will take place on Wednesday July 15 between 12:30-5:30pm
at Columbia University in 417 International Affairs Building (Altschul Auditorium) Map.
Admission is free, however we ask that you register in advance. Please register by noon on Friday, July 10.
