  • Several different techniques allow a functional assessment of neuronal activations by magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). The by far most influential fMRI technique is based on a local T2*-sensitive hemodynamic response to neuronal activation, also known as the blood oxygenation level dependent or BOLD effect. Consequently, the term ‘fMRI’ is often used synonymously with BOLD imaging. Because interpretations of fMRI brain activation maps often appear intuitive and compelling, the reader might be… CONTINUE READING
