Skills-oriented training opportunities at the CBU

The CBU offers several lecture and workshop series aimed at junior researchers who are beginning to use neuroimaging methods in cognitive neuroscience. Some of these are mandatory for PhD students at the CBU, but they are open to anyone in the Cambridge cognitive neuroscience community.

For more information, subscribe to our skills-training mailing list (Non-CBU people can subscribe by sending an e-mail to skillstraining-subscribe (at) mrc-cbu (dot) cam (dot) ac (dot) uk), or contact Olaf Hauk.
