Imaging Method Helps Identify Specific Mental States

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
STANFORD, Calif., May 27, 2011 — Distinct mental states can be distinguished using a form of functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to detect unique patterns of activity in coordinated "networks" within the brain. The technique, developed by researchers at Stanford University School of Medicine, may lead to novel diagnostic tests for Alzheimer's disease and other brain disorders in which network function is disrupted. In a novel set of experiments, researchers led by Michael Greicius, assistant professor of neurology and neurological sciences, determined from brain-imaging data whether experimental subjects were...Read full article
