Harvard NeuroDiscovery Center Enhanced Neuroimaging Core will host:

Digital Image Analysis with ImageJ
March 19th – March 21st  2015

Detailed information at


 This intensive 3-day workshop taught by Dr. Lai Ding, manager of the Harvard NeuroDiscovery Center Enhanced Neuroimaging Core, introduces ImageJ, its basic functions, and its macro programming capabilities. Using real imaging projects performed at the Harvard NeuroDiscovery Center's Enhanced Neuroimaging Core, Dr. Ding will demonstrate common image analysis tasks such as basic image processing, stack alignment, cell counting and measurement. Macro writing will be covered to demonstrate how to automate a series of ImageJ commands, to process massive datasets automatically and to store results as desired.

The workshop is broken down into three sessions. Interested participants can sign up for one or more sessions depending on their interest and experience. See tentative schedule below.

If you are interested in this workshop but unable to join this time, please also let us know (email lai_ding@hms.harvard.edu) if you may be able to join the same workshop in the coming months. We MAY host another identical workshop in November or December based on the interests shown.
