About this book

BOLD fMRI: A Guide for Neuroscientists is a compilation of key chapters selected by the editors to present neuroscientists with a comprehensive introduction to the basic principles of BOLD fMRI and its applications in cognitive neuroscience. This comprehensive book introduces important topics in BOLD fMRI such as scanning methodologies, experimental design and data analysis, and its challenges and limitations. Clinical applications of functional imaging are included in chapters on brain mapping in cognitive neuroscience, memory in aging and dementia, language systems, and the Wada test. Also included is a full-color neuroanatomical atlas of the basic motor, sensory, and cognitive activation sites that are discussed throughout the book. With contributions from internationally recognized neuroradiologists, neurologists, psychiatrists, cognitive neuroscientists, and physicists, this volume will appeal to all neuroscientists seeking a concise introduction to the fundamentals of BOLD fMRI.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“The articles are written … to introduce a field of study to the reader and to summarize the advancement. … This book can be a choice to fill in the background knowledge and be used as a reference. … the book’s theme is about the science and experiments of fMRI. A reader who has some experience in fMRI and is interested in the fundamentals or exploring different areas of fMRI application can benefit from this concise overview and the bibliographies.” (American Journal of Neuroradiology, July, 2011)
