Accreditation Check:
This course will highlight our current understanding of how advanced brain imaging methods are changing our understanding of how the brain works in both heath and disease. The course will first provide an introduction into current brain imaging methods used both clinically and in research. Next, the ability to characterize brain structure and function will be discussed. Finally, how these techniques are used to evaluate neuroplastic capacity of the brain will be summarized and the relevance to rehabilitation will be highlighted.

Chapters & Learning Objectives

Download Learning Objectives

1. Introduction to Human Brain Imaging

A basic introduction to common clinical and research brain imaging approaches will be provided. The major strengths and shortcomings of specific magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and electroencephalography (EEG) techniques will be highlighted.

2. Imaging Human Brain Structure

This chapter will focus on how MRI techniques can evaluate structure of different tissue types in the human brain. Content will emphasize cutting-edge imaging approaches that are redefining how we understand structural plasticity associated with skill learning.

3. Imaging Human Brain Function

This chapter will focus on how MRI techniques can evaluate the function of discrete and connected regions in the human brain. Content will emphasize cutting-edge imaging approaches that are redefining how we understand functional plasticity associated with skill learning.

This course will focus on how advanced brain imaging can inform our understanding of the behavioral manifestations of changes in brain structure and function in neurologic conditions. Using two examples: stroke and concussion, common changes in brain structure and function thought to be associated with cognitive and motor impairments will be described. Finally, how the clinician can exploit the information provided by human brain imaging to improve patient outcomes will be discussed.
