Chapter 24

Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging

Pascal Wallisch

This chapter will introduce you to functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) as a fundamental noninvasive tool in understanding brain functioning in human and non-human primates. We will describe the basic physics behind both structural and functional magnetic resonance imaging. We will then describe the major experimental paradigms used in fMRI research and the kinds of data that are collected in an fMRI experiment. Finally, using existing fMRI data from a visual attention experiment and face recognition study, we will show you how to analyze and visualize the data to come up with a statistical parametric map of activation in the brain. After completing this project, you should ...
