Dear Experts and Young Fellows,

We organise the 15th Neuroanatomy and Tractography Workshop in Tenerife between 24 and 27th February, 2014 at Guajara Campus, University of La Laguna.
This workshop is intended to help scientists to familiarize with fundaments of white matter anatomy, improve clinico-anatomical correlation, and optimization of the best strategies for diffusion acquisition, processing and tractography dissections. Advanced spherical deconvolution tractography will also be discussed.
The participants will be able to work on their own datasets (if available, otherwise training data is provided) and hands-on tutorials will be provided.
The workshop is geared towards Master’s and PhD students, post-doctoral trainees, research assistants and clinicians with a Neurology, Psychiatry, Psychology, Radiology or Computer Science background.
 
You can register on our website www.natbrainlab.com

With kind regards,

michel
