Speaker: : Dan Felsky

This is a tutorial on using the open-source software PRSice to calculate a set of polygenic risk scores (PRS) for a study sample. Users will also learn how to read PRS into R, visualize distributions, and perform basic association analyses.

Difficulty level: Intermediate

Duration: 1:53:34

Speaker: : Dan Felsky

Course:

This lesson describes the principles underlying functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI), tractography, and parcellation. These tools and concepts are explained in a broader context of neural connectivity and mental health.

Difficulty level: Intermediate

Duration: 1:47:22

Speaker: : Erin Dickie and John Griffiths

Course:

This tutorial introduces pipelines and methods to compute brain connectomes from fMRI data. With corresponding code and repositories, participants can follow along and learn how to programmatically preprocess, curate, and analyze functional and structural brain data to produce connectivity matrices.

Difficulty level: Intermediate

Duration: 1:39:04

Speaker: : Erin Dickie and John Griffiths

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.

Difficulty level: Intermediate

Duration: 1:28:14

Speaker: : Andreea Diaconescu

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.

Difficulty level: Intermediate

Duration: 1:15:04

Speaker: : Daniel Hauke
