MRI is a powerful imaging modality that has enormous potential in studies of cerebral aging. Over the past decade, MRI technologies have undergone rapid progress in both image quality and acquisition speed. Due to its non-invasive nature and the absence of radiation, the translation of these new methodologies to clinical and cognitive applications has also been amazingly fast. Many new imaging techniques that are viewed as emerging methods only a few years ago have now become routine. The MRI vendors have also enthusiastically adopted these new technologies and made them more widely available to researchers and clinicians. Therefore, MRI has become one of the most important tools in cognitive neuroscience and cerebral aging. This Chapter will provide a review of the basic principles of MRI, describe several major MRI techniques that are commonly used in cerebral aging, and introduce new, emerging techniques that are on the horizon.
