A BSI core, Center for Brain Imaging Science, provides a 20-hour course, entitled “Introduction to MRI and Image Analysis”. This course teaches basic MR image acquisition and analysis techniques for those who have had minimum exposure to MRI. Junior faculties are eligible to the course, but senior postdocs may be accepted if there are slots. The priority will be given to K awardees (including pending).  The course will start on 11/21at 9:00-10:00 and be held every Monday.  We will accept 10 faculties. For those interested in the course, please contact Susumu Mori (
