Activation Protocols in Normal Subjects Using SPET: A Window into Normal Brain Function
In previous chapters we described the principles of neuroactivation and reviewed the previous studies of SPET neuroactivation in normal controls. In this chapter we describe several neuroactivation procedures developed by the authors at the UCMSM Institute of Nuclear Medicine using the Neurocam, a high-sensitivity and high-resolution SPET system described in Chap. 3. These activation protocols were designed to explore motor, cognitive and sensory tasks.
