MORE ABOUT THIS BOOK

Main description:

Drs. Scott H. Faro and Feroze B. Mohamed of Drexel University College of Medicine have succeeded in translating benchmark research on functional MRI into clinical applications for the non-scientist physician, providing those unfamiliar with fMRI physics with much needed background. This practical and timely volume presents an overview of the principles of fMRI and explains experimental research design, outlines the challenges and limitations of fMRI, provides a detailed neuroanatomic atlas, and describes the clinical applications of fMRI in cognitive, sensory, motor, and pharmacological cases. Contributors to this comprehensive text include internationally recognized neurologists, radiologists, and psychologists. Abundant illustrations, most in color, complete the book.

Back cover:

Scott H. Faro and Feroze B. Mohamed have succeeded in translating benchmark research on functional MRI into clinical applications for the physician and cognitive neuroscientist, providing those unfamiliar with fMRI physics with much needed background. This practical and timely volume presents an overview of the principles of fMRI and explains key concepts, including scanning methodologies, experimental research design, and data analysis. Informative discussions cover the technical and clinical challenges associated with fMRI. A neuroanatomical atlas adds to the sensible approach and serves as a useful reference by clearly illustrating normal functioning for important areas of the brain. The final section of the book is devoted to fundamental clinical applications of fMRI in motor, sensory, language, cognitive, and pharmacology. A concluding chapter addresses future applications. Contributors to this comprehensive volume include internationally recognized neuroradiologists, neurologists, psychiatrists, cognitive neuroscientists, and physicists. A wealth of four-color illustrations completes this essential text.
