Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Imaging: Applications in Neuroscience Research
The human brain is probably one of the most complex biological systems to investigate. This presentation will give an overview of how nuclear magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) can be used to do basic and applied human neuroscience non-invasive research. A historical background of MRI will be provided, followed by a review of basic MRI physical concepts, including the main necessary equipment needed and safety considerations. Applications of brain structure and functional MRI studies will be briefly presented and future methodological challenges discussed.
