The history of human brain mapping is actually much shorter than one might have anticipated on entering the field. The first brain activation studies harnessed the ability to take images of brain function, successively within the same scanning session. This was facilitated by the use of short half-life radio tracers using Positron Emission Tomography (PET). These techniques became available in the late 80s and the first reports of human brain activation studies appeared in 1988. Up until this… CONTINUE READING
