Introduction to fMRI

Difficulty level

This module covers fMRI data, including creating and interpreting flat maps, exploring variability and average responses, and visual eccentricity. You will learn about processing BOLD signals, trial-averaging, and t-tests. The MATLAB code introduces data animations, multicolor visualizations, and linear indexing.
