About this book

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.

Reviews

Radiology Review:

"... The editors are respected experts in the field of MR imaging. ... Each chapter provides a substantial list of references ... The book contains a multitude of large high-resolution images, and some chapters contain informative tables that summarize and compare the literature. The book is easy to read, and the chapters on the underlying physical principles of functional MR imaging are particularly enjoyable. ... The editors achieved their goal of providing a thorough introduction to clinical functional MR imaging at a reasonable price. ..." (Birgit Kettenmann, PhD; Radiology Dec 2007)

From the reviews:

"The book is organized into 3 parts, with 19 chapters and an appendix. … Color illustrations of fMRI mappings abound (134 full-color illustrations in all), and each chapter is extensively referenced. … Young fMRI researchers would certainly benefit … . The more clinically oriented reader to whom the book is ostensibly targeted can find much useful information … ." (American Journal of Neuroradiology, Vol. 28, October, 2007)
