The XIV workshop of the International School on Magnetic Resonance and Brain Function (ISMRBF), will be held in 2021 in Erice (Italy) at the premises of the Ettore Majorana Foundation and Centre for Scientific Culture. Workshops of the ISMRBF are biennial events that gather scientists whose research is focused on the crucial intersection between technological advances in MRI and emerging applications in neuroscience.

Indeed, many recent improvements in MRI instrumentation and techniques have been triggered by the increasing demands from a vast community of neuroscientists, which are exploiting MRI as one the most powerful tools for non-invasive investigation of human brain structure and function. Another long lasting topic covered by ISMRBF is the use of multimodal and multiparametric approaches. MRI is intrinsically multiparametric, thanks to the flexibility of the framework for contrast generation, that can be made sensitive to multiple biophysical phenomena. MRI can be also combined with other distinct modalities, such as electrophysiology, optical imaging and PET based molecular imaging. Fusion of information within- and across modalities has shown an excellent potential to complement the strengths and weaknesses of MRI as a stand-alone technique.
