Multimodal Neuroimaging for Mental Disorders Workshop 2018

Helen Zhou (Duke-NUS) and Thomas Yeo (NUS) are pleased to announce the multimodal neuroimaging for mental disorders workshop. MRI and EEG offer exciting opportunities to study the human brain in-vivo. This workshop will feature cutting-edge multimodal neuroimaging research by local and international speakers on human brain anatomy, function and connectivity, as well as their alterations due to development, aging and mental disorders.


The workshop will be held on June 22nd (Friday) 2018, 8.30 to 17.10 at the CeLS auditorium at NUS (http://www.lsi.nus.edu.sg/corp/contact-us/). Due to generous funding and support from CIRC (https://www.circ.nus.edu.sg/), Duke-NUS medical school (https://www.duke-nus.edu.sg/) and SINAPSE (http://www.sinapseinstitute.org/), the event is free.


Capacity is limited to 100 people. If you have any questions about the event, please contact Nicole (nicolekmy@gmail.com).

Registration is required for catering purposes at the following link: due to overwhelming responses, the registration has been closed. For those on the waiting list, we will let you know soon whether we are able to accommodate you.
