The Population Studies Center at the Institute for Social Research is sponsoring a 4-part seminar series on the topic of applying perspectives from neuroscience to demographic research. In the second seminar UM faculty Luke Hyde, Ioulia Kovelman, and Fred Morrison will present methods for collecting neuroimaging data in population-based research, including fMRI, EEG, and fNIRS.
We’ll begin with an introduction to how each method is used, the type of information it gathers, and the samples and contexts in which it is appropriate. We’ll then discuss how each type of information can enhance traditional approaches to research questions in population studies.
The schedule for the remainder of the series appears below. All sessions will be held at ISR, 426 Thompson St. Lunch will be provided! (Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org)
