Over the course of recess week this semester (Semester 2, AY2016/17), two fascinating workshops on neuroimaging and neuroanatomy were held. The neuroimaging workshop introduced several common imaging techniques with a focus on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), while the neuroanatomy workshop served as a brief look into parts of the nervous system and their general functions.

Several highlights during the workshop included seeing the MRI machine in action (thank you Stevia and Caroline), and seeing how the parts of the neural system actually look like from silent mentors and preserved brains and spinal cords. (Not exactly for the faint of heart.)

Understanding Neuroanatomy and Neuroimaging

Are you interested in Neuroscience but unsure about where to start? Do you find research papers about Neuroscience intimidating because of all the jargon and technical terms?  A great way to start your journey is to understand the basics of Neuroanatomy and Neuroimaging – and here’s a chance for you to do just that!

The Internal Events Directorate has specially prepared some resources, in preparation for two workshops we’ll be having this coming week – a Neuroanatomy workshop and a Neuroimaging workshop!
