Recent studies suggested that functional activation using apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) contrast can be used to detect synchronized functional MRI (fMRI) signal changes during brain activation. Such changes may reflect better spatial localization to the smaller vessels, which are closely coupled to the true neuronal activation. Since it is generally believed that there are neural pathways among neuronally relevant areas, methods that would allow clear delineation of such pathways could… CONTINUE READING
