Bayesian inference (using prior knowledge to generate more accurate predictions about future events or outcomes) has become increasingly applied to the fields of neuroscience and neuroinformatics. In this course, participants are taught how Bayesian statistics may be used to build cognitive models of processes like learning or perception. This course also offers theoretical and practical instruction on dynamic causal modeling as applied to fMRI and EEG data.
Bayesian Models of Learning and Integration of Neuroimaging Data
This lesson breaks down the principles of Bayesian inference and how it relates to cognitive processes and functions like learning and perception. It is then explained how cognitive models can be built using Bayesian statistics in order to investigate how our brains interface with their environment.
This lesson corresponds to slides 1-64 in the PDF below.
This is a tutorial on designing a Bayesian inference model to map belief trajectories, with emphasis on gaining familiarity with Hierarchical Gaussian Filters (HGFs).
This lesson corresponds to slides 65-90 of the PDF below.
This lecture involves the application of dynamic causal modelling (DCM) to neuroimaging data acquired using fMRI and EEG. Various state-space models are discussed along with the requisite Bayesian model comparison.
This lesson corresponds to slides 91-157 of the PDF below.
This tutorial walks participants through the application of dynamic causal modelling (DCM) to fMRI data using MATLAB. Participants are also shown various forms of DCM, how to generate and specify different models, and how to fit them to simulated neural and BOLD data.
This lesson corresponds to slides 158-187 of the PDF below.
