This is the second edition of a useful introductory book on a technique that has revolutionized neuroscience, specifically cognitive neuroscience. Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) has now become the standard tool for studying the brain systems involved in cognitive and emotional processing. It has also been a major factor in the consilience of the fields of neurobiology, cognitive psychology, social psychology, radiology, physics, mathematics, engineering, and even philosophy. Written and edited by a clinician-scientist in the field, this book remains an excellent user's guide to t

Fundamental concepts, and some glimpses of the state-of-the-art of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and functional MRI (fMRI) are discussed in this monograph. A discussion on novel transform methods using Wavelets and the Periodicity Transform for processing the clinical fMRI data is included. The book describes results on the original functional MRI data set. This trial fMRI dataset is provided on a CD included in this book. Making free use of this data set for further experimentation on fMRI for academic and research purpose is highly encouraged. Algorithms on a few worked examples on fMRI data processing are explained. Presentation of certain concepts in MRI and Functional MRI is made simple for the readers from interdisciplinary areas of Medical Sciences and Engineering. This book is also an effort to address a few real-life examples in fMRI which have been evolved through the collaborative research by the Engineering and Medical fraternity.

With strong numerical and computational focus, this book serves as an essential resource on the methods for functional neuroimaging analysis, diffusion weighted image analysis, and longitudinal VBM analysis. It includes four MRI image modalities analysis methods. The first covers the PWI methods, which is the basis for understanding cerebral flow in human brain. The second part, the book’s core, covers fMRI methods in three specific domains: first level analysis, second level analysis, and effective connectivity study. The third part covers the analysis of Diffusion weighted image, i.e. DTI, QBI and DSI image analysis. Finally, the book covers (longitudinal) VBM methods and its application to Alzheimer’s disease study.

Prior to the publication of the first edition of this book in 2004, existing texts were targeted toward practicing scientists, and assumed a level of expertise not possessed by most students. Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging was the first textbook to provide a true introduction to fMRI designed with undergraduate students, graduate students, and beginning researchers in mind. Changes in the Second Edition include: Revised MR physics chapters that include parallel conceptual and quantitative paths, allowing students from diverse backgrounds and interests to readily navigate these topics. Expanded discussion of fMRI data analysis, with separate chapters on standard hypothesis-driven analyses and advanced exploratory analyses. Expanded coverage of experimental design that includes new approaches to efficient creation of fMRI experiments. Revised discussion of the physiological basis of fMRI to include recent discoveries about the origins of the BOLD response. A new Ethics chapter that discusses controversies, ethical and social concerns, and popular interpretations of fMRI research. Increased coverage of the integration of fMRI with other cognitive neuroscience techniques. New topics in the Advanced Methods chapter, reflecting cutting-edge developments in the field. Updated references and suggested readings throughout.

America's New Slavery? FMRI Technology! Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging! Or America's Salvation? All Americans Should Be Concerned!

For over thirteen years I have documented my attempts to track a technology that allows the US government to read our thoughts. FMRI is one name but they can hide files in all kinds of ways. I am very concern about a technology that allows any person or group to invade our last temple (our brain). Old Venice history stated that no one person or group of persons could hold absolute power. The power and decisions must fall to all the people. This is why I raise this issue. How could Bin-laden attach us. How have they been using this technology and how are they going to use this technology in the future. The people must get involved and start questioning our leaders on this issue. Do your own research and do something to protect our civil liberties, now.

This book provides a comprehensive introduction to functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), the scanning technique which allows mapping of active processes within the brain. These maps are used by neuroscientists to learn how the normal human brain works and by clinicians to study the diseased state.

Arterial spin labeling (ASL) offers a number of advantages over the blood oxygenation level dependent technique for functional brain imaging. However, widespread adoption of ASL for functional imaging has been hampered by inferior SNR and temporal resolution.

During the last two decades, new developments in functional MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) have made it possible to detect changes in the brain over time, as opposed to the "snapshot" produced by conventional MRI. Essentials of Functional MRI breaks down the technical challenges for physicians, researchers, and technologists who use functional MRI but may not be experts in the necessary math and physics. The author describes the theory and practical details of functional MRI (fMRI) methodology, including how to acquire and analyze images, and a wide range of examples demonstrate how fMRI has been used thus far. The author provides the essential information to study, understand, use, and teach the practical aspects of fMRI for those people who are most likely to extend its use into clinical practice.

An overview of statistical methods for analyzing data from fMRI experiments. Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), which allows researchers to observe neural activity in the human brain noninvasively, has revolutionized the scientific study of the mind. An fMRI experiment produces massive amounts of highly complex data; researchers face significant challenges in analyzing the data they collect. This book offers an overview of the most widely used statistical methods of analyzing fMRI data. Every step is covered, from preprocessing to advanced methods for assessing functional connectivity. The goal is not to describe which buttons to push in the popular software packages but to help readers understand the basic underlying logic, the assumptions, the strengths and weaknesses, and the appropriateness of each method. The book covers all of the important current topics in fMRI data analysis, including the relation of the fMRI BOLD (blood oxygen-level dependent) response to neural activation; basic analyses done in virtually every fMRI article--preprocessing, constructing statistical parametrical maps using the general linear model, solving the multiple comparison problem, and group analyses; the most popular methods for assessing functional connectivity--coherence analysis and Granger causality; two widely used multivariate approaches, principal components analysis and independent component analysis; and a brief survey of other current fMRI methods. The necessary mathematics is explained at a conceptual level, but in enough detail to allow mathematically sophisticated readers to gain more than a purely conceptual understanding. The book also includes short examples of Matlab code that implement many of the methods described; an appendix offers an introduction to basic Matlab matrix algebra commands (as well as a tutorial on matrix algebra). A second appendix introduces multivariate probability distributions.
