Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging

fMRI basics

Functional magnetic resonance imaging, or fMRI, is a technique that provides information on brain activity. It works by detecting the changes in blood oxygenation and flow that occur in response to neural activity – when a brain area is more active it consumes more oxygen and to meet this increased demand blood flow increases to the active area. 2,007 more words
