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.

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.

The second, revised edition of this successful textbook provides an up-to-date description of the use of preoperative fMRI in patients with brain tumors and epilepsies. State of the art fMRI procedures are presented, with detailed consideration of practical aspects, imaging and data processing, normal and pathological findings, and diagnostic possibilities and limitations. Relevant information on brain physiology, functional neuroanatomy, imaging technique, and methodology is provided by recognized experts in these fields. Compared with the first edition, chapters have been updated to reflect the latest developments and in particular the current use of diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) and resting-state fMRI. Entirely new chapters are included on resting-state presurgical fMRI and the role of DTI and tractography in brain tumor surgery. Further chapters address multimodality functional neuroimaging, brain plasticity, and pitfalls, tips, and tricks.

Abstract: Functional MRI or Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) is a type of specialized MRI scan which measures the hemodynamic response related to neural activity in the brain or spinal cord of humans and animals. Due to its relatively low invasiveness, absence of radiation exposure, and relatively wide availability, functional MRI has come to dominate the brain mapping field since the early 1990s. The objective of this thesis work is to develop and apply functional MRI methods at 7 Tesla, for in vivo investigation of rodent visual and auditory system. Firstly, the development of the rat visual pathway was studied by blood oxygenation level-dependent (BOLD) contrast from the time of eyelid opening (P14) to adulthood (P60) in normal rat brain. By studying BOLD-fMRI measurements in the normal brain superior colliculus (SC), we determined that the regional BOLD response undergoes a systematic increase in amplitude especially over the third postnatal week. Secondly, the potential for plasticity of the rodent superior colliculus (SC) was studied using BOLD fMRI. By studying BOLD-fMRI measurements in the SC of three groups of rats (normal, HI-injured with left SC partially damaged and HI-injured with left SC completely damaged), we can evaluate the extent of plastic changes, compensatory and transneuronal plasticity after varying degrees of SC injury. We also applied BOLD-fMRI using very short repetition time (TR) of 0.2s on rats to measure the difference in response temporal dynamics between the SC and LGN, which has not been measured conclusively or with high temporal resolution. The primary finding in this study is that there is an approximately 0.8s difference between the BOLD responses of the rat contralateral SC and LGN to the visual stimuli. In addition, the amplitude of the SC response is larger than that of the LGN. Thirdly, BOLD-fMRI is used to measure the SC hemodynamic responses, in normal adult Sprague-Dawley (SD) rats, during a dynamic visual stimulus similar to those used in long-range apparent motion studies. The stimulation paradigm mimic effective speeds of motion between 7 and 164?/s, the results suggest that the SC is sensitive to slow moving visual stimuli but the hemodynamic response is reduced at higher speeds. Finally, BOLD-fMRI is used to study hemodynamic response temporal dynamics in the superior colliculus (SC) and inferior colliculus (IC) following visual and auditory associated stimulation. Our results show the baselines of SC BOLD signal (in two sides) increase during the ON period of auditory stimulation, which demonstrate that auditory stimulation can increase ROI activation signal intensity in superior colliculus (SC). The previous dominant theory is that individual senses each have separate areas of the brain dedicated to processing each sense, while the individual sense perceptions are integrated together to produce a multi-sensory experience. As a result of new research over the past several years, however, this view has been challenged by studies showing that processing in the visual area of the brain can be directly influenced by hearing and touch. All these discoveries represent a new view of how the brain is actually organized.
