About this book


This book explores the revolutionary fMRI field from basic principles to state-of-the-art research. It covers a broad spectrum of topics, including the history of fMRI's development using endogenous MR blood contrast, neurovascular coupling, pulse sequences for fMRI, quantitative fMRI, genetic imaging using fMRI, multimodal neuroimaging, brain bioenergetics and function, and molecular-level fMRI. Comprehensive and intuitively structured, this book examines the physiological basis of fMRI, the basic principles of fMRI and its applications, and the latest advances of the technology. The final chapter discusses the field's future.

fMRI: From Nuclear Spins to Brain Function is an ideal resource for clinicians and researchers in the fields of neuroscience, psychology, and MRI physics.

This book also:

·         Explores a wide range of topics, covering the physical basics, physiological bases, a selection of various applications, and cutting-edge advances in fMRI

·         Engages the reader with a first-person account of the development and history of the fMRI field by the authors

·         Discusses fMRI applications in a variety of contexts, including fMRI of the visual system, auditory cortex, and sensorimotor system as well as the history of fMRI's development using endogenous MR blood contrast, neurovascular coupling, pulse sequences for fMRI, and quantitative fMRI
