Dr Pernet obtained a PhD in Cognitive Neuropsychology from the University of Toulouse in France in 2004. He joined the Brain Research Imaging Center, Edinburgh in 2007, as fMRI lead for SINPASE (Scottish Imaging Network A Platform for Scientific Excellence). He is now an Academic Fellow, teaching fMRI/EEG and researching in the areas of visual and auditory categorization and language with a focus on methods (statistics) and clinical applications (brain tumors, stroke). He is also the Edinburg Imaging scientific contact for functional MRI studies, a lead advocate for open science and the organizer of many courses on brain imaging.
Using a simple all brain volume and VBM approach to ageing, I will present various methods and analysis choices that can greatly impact results.
