PhD teaching modules
We hold a variety of PhD teaching modules within the Sir Peter Mansfield Imaging Centre.
F34FMI Functional Medical Imaging
Lecturer: Sue Francis, Physics
A third-year undergraduate physics course which aims to introduce MRI, and the brain imaging techniques of functional MRI, electroencephalography (EEG) and magnetoencephalography (MEG), giving an overview of the physics involved in each technique.
The course commences on 30 January with lectures in the Physics building on :
- Monday, 1200 in C12
- Thursday, 1100 in B37
Please contact Sue if you would like to attend.
Lecturer: Matt Brookes and Karen Mullinger, Physics
Run in conjunction with ONBI so places are limited. Runs intensively in week commencing 30 January 2017 (repeated annually).
Please contact Matt and Karen if you would like to attend the lecture aspect of this course. They will allocate places to the students for whom it is most relevant.
