[Functional MRI employing diazepam; a proposal of neuropharmacological fMRI].

Abstract

Employing the active benzodiazepine receptor (BZR) ligands, we have used BOLD fMRI to elucidate the effects of these drugs on brain function. The sequential MRI was performed with a 1.5T clinical scanner (Philips GYROSCAN) using a FLASH sequence with the following parameters: TR/TE, 100/45 msec; flip angle, 25 degrees; matrix size, 128*128; 2 averages; for… (More)
