Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


The advancement of MRI methods has provided researchers with unique opportunities to examine human brain function in vivo. Since the introduction of functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) in the early 1990s, the number of published studies using this method to examine cognitive, motor, and sensory functioning has increased each year. In the year 2000, roughly 1,000 articles were published using fMRI, and this number topped 2,500 in the year 2006 with no clear sign of asymptote (Bandettini, Int J Psychophysiol 63:138-145, 2007).
