Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging: An Introduction to Methods

Peter Jezzard, Paul M Matthews, and Stephen M Smith


This book provides an introduction to functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), the scanning technique that allows the mapping of active processes within the brain. There are six sections to the book, with chapters from an international team. Part I provides a broad overview of the field and sets the context. Part II describes the physiological and physical background to fMRI, including coverage of the hardware required and pulse-sequence selection. Practical issues involving experimental design of the paradigms, psycho-physical stimulus delivery, and subject response are covered in Part I ... More

Keywords: fMRI, scanning technique, mapping, active processes, brain, pulse-sequence selection, experimental design, paradigms, stimulus delivery, subject response
