Free Event

*This event is open to all


In this seminar, Dr. Huber will  talk about the developing field of cortical layer-specific fMRI in humans. He will start by introducing the practical challenges of high-resolution fMRI at ultra high fields and recent developments to use these tools for capturing neural processes within and across cortical layers. For the main part of the presentation, he will give an overview of recent neuroscientific application studies of blood volume weighted layer-fMRI, across a wide spectrum of cortical brain systems. And their challenges. Examples include:

  • layer-fMRI applications in the somatosensory system, visual cortex, and auditory cortex.
  • approaches to perform whole brain layer-fmri including associative areas and what they can tell us about the brain.
  • layer-fMRI analysis with LayNii.
