This course provides a comprehensive tutorial on emerging MRI methodologies for studying and characterizing the human brain. The basic methodological requirements in order to obtain meaningful information from the CNS using such techniques will be introduced as well as the advantages and limitations of each technique in the setting of impotent physiological and pathological states.
Target audience is MR scientists and clinicians interested in gathering the operational knowledge required to use these techniques for studying basic and pathological brain metabolism as well as diagnosing clinically relevant conditions.
Upon completion of this course, participants should be able to:
-Appraise the role of emerging techniques for the non-invasive MRI of brain function;
-Outline data acquisition requirements for effective application of these techniques; and
-Summarize physiological parameters that can be measured in a clinical and/or research setting.
