PURPOSE Our goal was to use functional MRI (fMRI) to measure brain activation in response to imagination of odors in humans. METHOD fMR brain scans were obtained in 21 normal subjects (9 men, 12 women) using multislice FLASH MRI in response to imagination of odors of banana and peppermint and to the actual smells of the corresponding odors of amyl acetate and menthone, respectively, in three coronal sections selected from anterior to posterior temporal brain regions. Similar studies were… CONTINUE READING
