Methodological Courses

Arduino and Microcontrollers Course

This course is intended as an introduction to using arduino and microcontrollers.

Basic Principles of Magnetic Resonance Imaging

The course focuses on the analysis and characterization of neuroimaging data, including Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and functional MRI (fMRI). 

Eye Tracking Course

We are pleased to announce that from April 9 to 13, Prof. Bernhard Angele will hold a course about eye tracking, each morning from 10 am to 12. The course will be about how an eye tracker works, setting up an experiment for data collection, data cleaning and aggregation, and data analysis and reporting. A more detailed syllabus will be posted soon on our website. 

All the SISSA PhD students (especially those in the first year) and Trento master students are strongly encouraged to attend. 

Introduction to Electronics

Along this course you will be guided through a rational pathway touching different topics in the field of electronics. By following a theoretical approach with practical examples connected to the scientific laboratory environment, the course is open to everybody who aims to understand and take advantage of electronics as a tool for their research.

Modelling of Human Cognition Data

In this course we go together over a set of human cognition data, trying to extract reliable inferences from it. If it sounds very general, that's exactly it—you can think of this course as a series of hands-on meetings on what is our everyday task as scientists, that is, transforming experimental data into solid science (which is somewhat correlated to have a publishable paper, or a solid chance to get your PhD ;-)).

Scientific Programming

Programming is quickly becoming a necessary skill for any scientist to have, especially with regards to data collection and data analysis. This course is aimed at building a solid foundation for understanding programming, as well as developing concrete skills in the main areas of data science: collection, organization, visualization, analysis and modelling.

Scientific Writing

The aim of this course is to help improve one’s scientific writing, oral and poster presentations by introducing rules of style to communicate in a concise, clear and convincing way and rules for effective slide and poster preparation and speech delivery.

Signal detection and Information Analyses in Neuroscience

This course provides an introduction to fundamental analyses and methods for understanding computational principles governing various aspects of information processing in the brain, including examples from single sensory neurons to ensemble of neurons, and behavioural and psychological measures.
