Functional MRI (fMRI) is an advanced neuro-radiological procedure that detects brain activity related to a specific task or function. The result is a three dimensional map of the areas of the brain responsible for that function. fMRI has become a fundamental tool for pre-operative neurosurgical planning in the clinical setting. fMRI has countless research applications ranging from behavioral studies, to cognition, brain development and even thought prediction.
fMRI consulting specializes in on-site, instructor led training; custom design and installation of stimulus and patient response devices; plus image processing and results analysis support for radiology departments or research centers interested in starting or improving an fMRI service.
