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.
