Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) has become a standard tool for mapping the working brain's activation patterns, both in health and in disease. It is an interdisciplinary field and crosses the borders of neuroscience, psychology, psychiatry, radiology, mathematics, physics and engineering. Developments in techniques, procedures and our understanding of this field are expanding rapidly. In this second edition of Introduction to Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging, Richard Buxton – a leading authority on fMRI – provides an invaluable guide to how fMRI works, from introducing the basic ideas and principles to the underlying physics and physiology. He covers the relationship between fMRI and other imaging techniques and includes a guide to the statistical analysis of fMRI data. This book will be useful both to the experienced radiographer, and the clinician or researcher with no previous knowledge of the technology.

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.

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.

This textbook provides a true introduction to functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), which has become the dominant research technique in cognitive neuroscience. Although there is extraordinary interest in fMRI among researchers and instructors alike, two problems have hampered the study of this technique. First, existing texts are targeted toward practicing scientists in the field and assume a level of expertise not possessed by most students. Second, most students do not have access to fMRI equipment and data, so they have no opportunity to gain hands-on experience. This textbook overcomes these limitations by presenting a comprehensive overview of all aspects of fMRI, designed with undergraduate students, graduate students and beginning researchers in mind. The author's goal was to create a book that is sufficiently scientifically rigorous for scientists in the field, but also accessible enough to be easily read and understood by beginning students. The book can be used as the primary text for classes in fMRI, or as a secondary text for cognitive neuroscience, research methods or other courses.

This book provides a comprehensive introduction to functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), the scanning technique which allows mapping of active processes within the brain. These maps are used by neuroscientists to learn how the normal human brain works and by clinicians to study the diseased state.

Fundamental concepts, and some glimpses of the state-of-the-art of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and functional MRI (fMRI) are discussed in this monograph. A discussion on novel transform methods using Wavelets and the Periodicity Transform for processing the clinical fMRI data is included. The book describes results on the original functional MRI data set. This trial fMRI dataset is provided on a CD included in this book. Making free use of this data set for further experimentation on fMRI for academic and research purpose is highly encouraged. Algorithms on a few worked examples on fMRI data processing are explained. Presentation of certain concepts in MRI and Functional MRI is made simple for the readers from interdisciplinary areas of Medical Sciences and Engineering. This book is also an effort to address a few real-life examples in fMRI which have been evolved through the collaborative research by the Engineering and Medical fraternity.

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.
