About the Webinar

This webinar will cover the use of functional MR imaging in understanding how the brain works, how it's connected and what changes when something goes wrong. Research using both task based fMRI (when someone performs a specific task in the magnet while their brain is imaged) and resting-state fMRI (when the subject is simply instructed to lie still and do nothing) will be discussed and the types of information that can be obtained from such studies will be presented.
