Webinar: Signal and Noise in Psychiatric Neuroimaging
John Krystal, Alan Anticevic,
Deanna Barch, Randy Buckner, Daniel Weinberger
Join us on Monday, June 6, at 12 noon US EDT, for a webinar on critical issues in the interpretation of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) data in psychiatric research. SRF advisor John Krystal will moderate a discussion among Alan Anticevic, Deanna Barch, Randy Buckner, and Daniel Weinberger.

For some years now, the methodologists in the neuroimaging community have been working to resolve a well-known confounder
in magnetic imaging (MRI) research: the fact that head movement and breathing are hard to control for. This concern and others specific to psychiatric research were laid out in detail in a recent review in the American Journal of Psychiatry by Daniel Weinberger and Eugenia Radulescu.

In preparation for the webinar, we also invite you to read commentaries here and here on the Weinberger and Radulescu review by Alan Anticevic and Matthew Glasser, and by Godfrey Pearlson, Vince Calhoun, and David C. Glahn. We welcome the submission of preliminary comments that can be taken up in the webinar discussion.
