Welcome to the wiki page for the NeuroImaging Journal Club at the Center for the Neural Basis of Cognition (CNBC) at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) and the University of Pittsburgh (Pitt). We will meet in the Mellon Institute (MI; corner of 5th & Bellefield) biweekly to discuss current controversies and advancements in the field of brain imaging (broadly construed). This includes fMRI, TMS, DTI, MEG, EEG, etc.

This webpage and associated group are administered/organized by Adam Greenberg (CMU-Psychology) & John Pyles (CMU-CNBC).
