functional MRI (fMRI)
fMRI plot

Functional Margentic Resonance Imaging (fMRI)is a type of MRI scan that uses a strong magnet to take pictures of the brain. fMRI shows activation that is localized to a certain region. The use of fMRI provides insight into the structural of the brain and also which structures are activated while performing specific tasks related to certain cogntiive functions. The neural activity that takes place while undergoing a task is reflected in the blood-oxygen levels of the brain that is detected by the fMRI technique. The use of fMRI is a non-invasive procedure.
