Overview

An Introduction to Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging is an invaluable introduction to how fMRI works, from basic principles and underlying physics and physiology, to newer techniques such as arterial spin labeling and diffusion tensor imaging. The supplementary CD-ROM contains all the figures from the book as PowerPoint files, together with movies of cross-sectional anatomical MR images and a library of all the MR images used in the movies as individual Tiff files. As a resource for teachers and researchers, this combination of text and dual platform CD is unsurpassed.
