Statistical Parametric Mapping The Analysis of Functional Brain Images Excerpt :

In an age where the amount of data collected from brain imaging is increasing constantly, it is of critical importance to analyse those data within an accepted framework to ensure proper integration and comparison of the information collected. This book describes the ideas and procedures that underlie the analysis of signals produced by the brain. The aim is to understand how the brain works, in terms of its functional architecture and dynamics. This book provides the background and methodology for the analysis of all types of brain imaging data, from functional magnetic resonance imaging to magnetoencephalography. Critically, Statistical Parametric Mapping provides a widely accepted conceptual framework which allows treatment of all these different modalities. This rests on an understanding of the brain's functional anatomy and the way that measured signals are caused experimentally. The book takes the reader from the basic concepts underlying the analysis of neuroimaging data to cutting edge approaches that would be difficult to find in any other source. Critically, the material is presented in an incremental way so that the reader can understand the precedents for each new development. This book will be particularly useful to neuroscientists engaged in any form of brain mapping; who have to contend with the real-world problems of data analysis and understanding the techniques they are using. It is primarily a scientific treatment and a didactic introduction to the analysis of brain imaging data. It can be used as both a textbook for students and scientists starting to use the techniques, as well as a reference for practicing neuroscientists. The book also serves as a companion to the software packages that have been developed for brain imaging data analysis. An essential reference and companion for users of the SPM software Provides a complete description of the concepts and procedures entailed by the analysis of brain images Offers full didactic treatment of the

Functional Neuroimaging Excerpt :

The 1990s have been designated by congress and the president as the decade of the brain, in part due to recognition of the expansion of knowledge and technology in the realm of neuroscience. Functional neuroimaging encompasses the technique of electrophysiology (EEG), magnetoecephalography (MEG), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and positron emission tomography (PET). Through these techniques, high resolution, 3 dimensional anatomical information can be obtained ofthe brain and it's functioning in normal and diseases states. Neuroscientists everywhere use neuroimaging in research, and these techniques are also used regularly by clinicians, and increasingly by biopsychologists. Given the increase in the number of techniques, and their diversity of applications, there is a need for a comprehensive volume to address both the technology and function of their use. Key Features * Addresses the technical problems of image registration * Compares different approaches to inter-subject and intra-subject analysis * Explores the synergestic advantages of multivolume integration * Divided into four sections devoted to relevant, timely issues

Handbook of Functional MRI Data Analysis Excerpt :

Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) has become the most popular method for imaging brain function. Handbook of Functional MRI Data Analysis provides a comprehensive and practical introduction to the methods used for fMRI data analysis. Using minimal jargon, this book explains the concepts behind processing fMRI data, focusing on the techniques that are most commonly used in the field. This book provides background about the methods employed by common data analysis packages including FSL, SPM and AFNI. Some of the newest cutting-edge techniques, including pattern classification analysis, connectivity modeling and resting state network analysis, are also discussed. Readers of this book, whether newcomers to the field or experienced researchers, will obtain a deep and effective knowledge of how to employ fMRI analysis to ask scientific questions and become more sophisticated users of fMRI analysis software.
