CBI Seminar Series

The CBI Users Group meets twice a month in BEB 201 and provides a forum for in-depth discussions by researchers about imaging, statistical methods, data analysis techniques, and administrative issues. The first portion of the meeting is dedicated to discussion of CBI equipment and administrative issues, and the remainder of the meeting typically consists of a presentation of a discussion topic chosen by the group. Typical discussion topics include details of image formation, multiple compartment connections, functional versus effective connectivity, arterial spin labeling, appropriateness of model fitting, distribution of functional imaging residuals, and resting state network analysis.

Study Groups

CBI study groups are open to everyone and provide in-depth discussions of ongoing research, analysis, and current issues in the field of imaging.


1st Tuesday of the month, 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. (BEB 302)

Organizer Joseph Schacht, Ph.D.

The CBI Addiction Study Group is a forum for discussion of neuroimaging of addictive disorders. Topics include the following:

  • Discussion of the clinical presentation of disorders including alcohol, nicotine, cocaine, heroin, and prescription opioid abuse and dependence.
  • Application of a broad spectrum of neuroimaging modalities, including functional and structural MRI, diffusion tensor and kurtosis imaging, and magnetic resonance spectroscopy and methods, including network connectivity analysis.
  • Opportunities for collaboration among investigators for grant submissions.

Meetings have varied formats, including journal club discussion, data presentation, grant ideas forums, and practice job or conference talks. Both clinical and basic science investigators currently involved with addiction neuroimaging projects or hoping to pursue such projects are encouraged to attend.
