FUNCTIONAL MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING HUETTEL PDF

Sagor Much of his research—which includes collaborations with neuroscientists, psychologists, behavioral economists, and business and medical faculty—falls within the emerging interdiscipline of neuroeconomics. One goal of his research is fmdi elucidate the brain mechanisms of high-level visual function, particularly with regard to perception of faces and visual motion cues for social cognition.

Synopsis Blood Oxygen Level Dependent BOLD functional magnetic resonance imaging fMRI depicts changes in deoxyhemoglobin concentration consequent to task-induced or spontaneous modulation of neural metabolism. Since its inception in , this method has been widely employed in thousands of studies of cognition for clinical applications such as surgical planning, for monitoring treatment outcomes, and as a biomarker in pharmacologic and training programs.

Technical developments have solved most of the challenges of applying fMRI in practice. These challenges include low contrast to noise ratio of BOLD signals, image distortion, and signal dropout. More recently, attention is turning to the use of pattern classification and other statistical methods to draw increasingly complex inferences about cognitive brain states from fMRI data.

This paper reviews the methods, some of the challenges and the future of fMRI. Keywords: functional magnetic resonance imaging, fMRI Introduction Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging fMRI is a class of imaging methods developed in order to demonstrate regional, time-varying changes in brain metabolism 3 , 37 , These metabolic changes can be consequent to task-induced cognitive state changes or the result of unregulated processes in the resting brain. The popularity of fMRI derives from its widespread availability can be performed on a clinical 1.

Increasingly, fMRI is being used as a biomarker for disease 33 , 36 , to monitor therapy 54 , or for studying pharmacological efficacy Thus, it is of interest to review the fMRI contrast mechanisms, the strengths and weaknesses, and evolutionary trends of this important tool.

Basis for fMRI fMRI is of course based on MRI, which in turn uses Nuclear Magnetic Resonance coupled with gradients in magnetic field 38 to create images that can incorporate many different types of contrast such as T1 weighting, T2 weighting, susceptibility, flow, etc.

All the processes of neural signaling in the brain, including formation and propagation of action potentials, binding of vesicles to the pre-synaptic junction, the release of neurotransmitters across the synaptic gap, their reception and regeneration of action potentials in the postsynaptic structures, scavenging of excess neurotransmitters, etc.

This nucleotide is produced principally by the mitochondria from glycolytic oxygenation of glucose, and its production results in carbon dioxide as a byproduct. When a region of the brain is up-regulated i.

The increased blood flow acts to restore the local [O2] level required to overcome the transient deficit; however, for reasons that are still not fully understood more oxygen is delivered than is needed to offset the increase in CMRO2. As a result, neural up-regulation results initially in a build-up of deoxygenated hemoglobin [Hb] and a decrease in deoxygenated hemoglobin [HbO2] in the intra- and extravascular spaces, followed within a second or two by a vasodilatory response that reverses the situation to result in an increase in [HbO2] and decrease in [Hb] over that in the resting condition 13 , 22 see Fig.

This sequence of processes is described as the hemodynamic response to the neural event.

Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging

About this title Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging was the first textbook to provide a true introduction to fMRI--one that presented material authoritatively and comprehensively, yet was accessible to undergraduate students, graduate students, and beginning researchers. This third edition features an updated discussion of the physiological basis of fMRI that includes recent discoveries about the origins of the BOLD response, new data-driven and computational approaches to fMRI data analysis, explanations of creative approaches to experimental design, and discussions of ethical and methodological controversies, among many other revisions. Examples are drawn both from seminal historical work and cutting-edge current research. Concepts are reinforced by numerous thought problems and illustrated with full-color figures, all revised for this edition to achieve a contemporary graphic look. Each chapter is accompanied by updated references and suggested readings. About the Author: Scott A. Huettel is the Jerry G.
