Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

From the reviews:

“fMRI Techniques and Prools is a well written and comprehensive book on state-of-the-art technology and fMRI and accurately depicts fMRI as an invaluable tool for studying brain function. … This book provides a quality resource for scientists, engineers and clinicians … . very useful to the research community, and as fMRI is more heavily utilized as a clinical tool, this book will also be a good addition to a clinician’s library. … it is recommended to anyone interested in carrying out these powerful experiments.” (American Journal of Neuroradiology, December, 2009)
