In vivo feasibility of using low-intensity focused ultrasound (FUS) to transiently modulate the function of regional brain tissue has been recently tested in anesthetized lagomorphs [1] and rodents [2-4]. Hypothetically, ultrasonic stimulation of the brain possesses several advantages [5]: it does not necessitate surgery or genetic alteration but could(More)
PURPOSE Low-intensity focused ultrasound has been shown to stimulate the brain noninvasively and without noticeable tissue damage. Such a noninvasive and localized neurostimulation is expected to have a major impact in neuroscience in the coming years. This emerging field will require many animal experiments to fully understand the link between ultrasound(More)

MR ARFI measures the displacement induced by the ultrasonic radiation force and provides the location of the focal spot without significant heating effects. Displacements maps obtained with MR ARFI provide an indirect estimation of the acoustic beam intensity at the target. This measure is essential for dose estimation prior to focused ultrasound treatments(More)
