neurological patients with brain injury is one of the standard methods
used in cognitive neuroscience to understand the relationship between
anatomy and behaviour. The
workshop aims to provide participants with the technique of modern
lesion delineation and statistical analysis in neurological patients
with brain injury.
the first day, the workshop will give a theoretical as well as a
hands-on practical introduction to modern lesion analysis techniques
using statistical approaches that provide a precise and valid
localization of ‘critical’ brain areas in humans.
On the second day, we will introduce the use of a new (semi-)automated lesion delineation technique, demonstrate a new tool to perform statistical lesion analyses, as well as provide an introduction to Matlab scripting. Moreover, we will address the statistical procedures to analyse single stroke patients..
