Introduction to medical statistics


This Indico event describes the content and planning for the course "Introduction to medical statistics" (STAT0722). Note that the program here under still need to be updated, especially the later classes...

The course content is focused on the SPM software and its application to analyse neuroimaging data. The course will be illustrated with some example of data processing using the demo data from SPM.

The material from last year's and 2020's course (including video recordings for the latter) is obviously an excellent source of information. Not to be missed either, the slides and videos from past official SPM courses in London!

Class room & timetable

Six classes are planned, on Wednesdays from 14h till 17h with a mid-break, and the exact program will be adapted. Those will take place

  • in the "Big meeting" room, at the Cyclotron Research Centre, B30, on November 9 & 23 and December 7 & 4;
  • in room S2, at the "Grands amphis", B7a, on November 16 & 30.

For those who can only attend remotely, the course will tentatively be live streamed via Teams. Alternatively, you could check out the recording of the 2020 course, which cover about the same content, see this Indico page for the video links.


This will consist in the oral presentation of a peer-reviewed article in the field of neuroimaging. The focus should be on the methodological aspects and data processing overall. Students are free to choose an article they find interesting but it should still be approved by C. Phillips.

Potential journals:

Potential papers, from last year so the list should be updated!

Date, time & place:
