Preoperative Mapping of the Sensorimotor Cortex: Comparative Assessment of Task-Based and Resting-State fMRI
Resting state fMRI (rs-fMRI) has recently been considered as a possible complement or alternative to task-based fMRI (tb-fMRI) for presurgical mapping. However, evidence of its usefulness remainsExpand
