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.

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 is the first textbook on clinical fMRI. It is devoted to preoperative fMRI in patients with brain tumors and epilepsies, which are the most well-established clinical applications. State-of-the-art fMRI procedures are presented, with detailed consideration of the physiological and methodological background, imaging and data processing, normal and pathological findings, diagnostic possibilities and limitations, and other related techniques.
Presurgical Functional Neuroimaging
Author: Christoph Stippich
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
Functional MRI (fMRI) and the basic method of BOLD imaging were introduced in 1993 by Seiji Ogawa. From very basic experiments, fMRI has evolved into a clinical application for daily routine brain imaging. There have been various improvements in both the imaging technique as such as well as in the statistical analysis. In this volume, experts in the field share their knowledge and point out possible technical barriers and problems explaining how to solve them. Starting from the very basics on the origin of the BOLD signal, the book covers technical issues, anatomical landmarks, presurgical applications, and special issues in various clinical fields. Other modalities for brain mapping such as PET, TMS, and MEG are also compared with fMRI. This book is intended to give a state-of-the-art overview and to serve as a reference and guide for clinical applications of fMRI.
Basics and Clinical Applications

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.

Applications to Functional MRI
Author: Denis Le Bihan
Publisher: Raven Press (ID)
Functional magnetic resonance imaging (FMRI) has become the most widely used method for imaging normal brain function in a relatively short period of time. The use of FMRI in clinically related research has been much slower; however, FMRI is now becoming a valuable tool in the study of many neurological and psychiatric disorders. This book explains the status of current clinical applications of FMRI in preoperative evaluation, diagnosis and discrimination of pathology, and in understanding recovery, therapeutics and rehabilitation of neurological and psychiatric conditions. Individual chapters cover the use of FMRI in the preoperative assessment of both motor function and language as well as in the assessment of age-related changes in memory. More focused chapters cover the use of FMRI in specific medical conditions including dementia, schizophrenia, depression and anxiety disorders, stroke, Parkinson's disease and multiple sclerosis. The book concludes with a chapter on the role of FMRI in monitoring changes in brain function following exposure to clinical pharmacotherapeutics and experimental drug compounds. This book will be of interest to both novice FMRI researchers and expert FMRI scientists as well as to clinicans in neurology, radiology and psychiatry.
