This page hosts a (slowly growing..) collection of resources, including papers and slide presentations that might help you learn and keep up with fMRI methods.
- fMRI analysis theory:
Monti MM (2010) Statistical analysis of fMRI time-series: a critical review of the GLM approach. Frontiers in Human Neuroscience. doi: 10.3389/fnhum.2011.00028. This paper will give you a good overview of the theory behind first-level and second-level fMRI analysis in an accessible language, with particular stress on whether BOLD time-series abide by the Gauss-Markov hypothesis.
Mumford JA & Nichols T (2009) Simple group fMRI modeling and inference. Neuroimage 47, 1469–1475. A very well written and accessible explanation of group modeling in fMRI.
