SINAPSE experts from around Scotland have developed ten online modules designed to explain medical imaging. They are freely available and are intended for non-specialists.

Edinburgh Imaging Academy at the University of Edinburgh offers the following online programmes through a virtual learning environment:

Neuroimaging for Research MSc/Dip/Cert

Imaging MSc/Dip/Cert

PET-MR Principles & Applications Cert

Applied Medical Image Analysis Cert

Online Short Courses

PhD opportunities at Aberdeen: Magnetic resonance relaxometry, Fast field-cycling MRI, EEG

Imaging-related research projects available among EASTBIO Doctoral Training Partnership PhD opportunities at University of Aberdeen

The EASTBIO (East of Scotland BioScience) Doctoral Training Partnership, funded by the BBSRC, offers an excellent programme of collaborative training for PhD students within the Biosciences.  The programme includes the following imaging-related research projects based at the University of Aberdeen:

Learning to predict: Neural mechanisms of error-based learning in native and non-native language processing (Supervisors: Joost Rommers, Agnieszka Konopka)

Using biomarkers to illuminate the experience of being forgotten or remembered (Supervisors: Devin Ray, Rama Chakravarthi)

Brain mechanisms of trustworthiness perception (Supervisors: Mauro Manassi, Clare Sutherland)

Is working memory accessed through modality-specific control functions? (Supervisors: Tobias Katus, Søren Andersen)

Understanding the rules of self-reference in bolstering age-related memory (Supervisors: Jie Sui, Dewei Yi)

Decision and uncertainty: variation in choice versus optimal rule-following (Supervisors: Amelia Hunt, Rama Chakravarthi)

Choosing beauty: the neural mechanisms of aesthetic decision-making (Supervisors: Rama Chakravarthi, Amelia Hunt)

Seeing meaning in others' behaviour: neurocognitive mechanisms revealed with EEG (Supervisors: Patric Bach, Joost Rommers)

Is visual attention an oscillatory process? (Supervisors: Søren Andersen, Rama Chakravarthi)

Coupling novel non-invasive imaging methods and new gene therapies to detect and treat type 2 diabetes (Supervisors: Justin Rochford, Lionel Broche)

Non-invasive mapping of oxygen extraction fraction in human: Development of novel multi-parametric magnetic resonance relaxometry imaging methods (Supervisors: Jiabao He, Valerie Speirs, Yazan Masannat)
