New BME Course Offering this Fall

Created: July 8, 2019

How can we use MRI to measure brain activity, blood flow, and tissue microstructure? Learn how we process, model, and ultimately interpret brain-imaging data in BME (Biomedical Engineering) 495, MRI Modeling of Brain Physiology. This class will be held Mondays and Wednesdays this fall from 4:00 - 5:20 PM on the Evanston Campus and is open to all TGS students.

BME 495 will explore the technical aspects of modeling brain activity, blood flow, and tissue properties using different MRI data and assessments will involve critical analysis of the literature to develop new research questions using these techniques in a clinical or neuroscience application of the student’s choice. This course 

Students without prior MRI experience will be asked to do a bit of prep before the first class to make sure they have a general understanding of how MRI data are acquired. If you are interested in taking this course, but do not have MRI experience, please email Professor Molly Bright, D.Phil.
