In addition to consultation MINDSET offers customized training seminars for individuals and groups that would like training in any area of MINDSET's expertise. Training can be arranged through sub-contract or it can be done as fee-for-service with no formal collaboration. We can arrange training at our facility in Albuquerque, New Mexico or MINDSET will send individuals with the relevant expertise to your university or laboratory at your convenience.
The principals of MINDSET offer customized training to researchers of all levels and for all modalities in which MINDSET offers services. These modalities include sMRI, fMRI, EEG, MEG, and more.
An example is an fMRI acquisition and analysis training course offered 2-3 times a year that provides those who are just getting started with fMRI a comprehensive set of tools and software to get started with their own studies while those who are more advanced will benefit from custom code and supplements to standard analyses developed by the instructors. The course covers Statistical Parametric Mapping (SPM8), independent component analyses (ICA) of fMRI data, mediation analysis of fMRI, and statistical nonparametric mapping (SnPM). The course provides comprehensive coverage of all aspects of experimental design, image acquisition, image preprocessing, and analysis using the general linear model and ICA. This course can be customized to your laboratory's needs.
