XI Workshop: BRAIN FUNCTION INVESTIGATION BY MAGNETIC RESONANCE, ELECTROPHYSIOLOGY AND MOLECULAR IMAGING

Erice (Sicily), 18thMay - 25th May 2014

Magnetic Resonance in the last twenty years has generated a wide revolution in biomedical research and in medical diagnostics. More recently the "in vivo" studies of the human brain were extended by new original ways of observing the areas of the human cortex activated by stimuli. The enormous interest in expanding the investigation of the brain is emphasizing the search for new NMR methods capable of extracting information of so far obscure aspects of the brain function. In fact perfusion imaging, diffusion tensor imaging, and other approaches were proposed in order to complement the information obtained by BOLD fMRI. In this course, strong emphasis will be given to the new openings arising from the combination of fMRI and EEG. The acquisition of simultaneous information provided by the different techniques is bound to generate important developments in the near future. The purpose of this course is also to introduce, in a comparative way, all the main existing NMR tools for the brain function investigation. At the same time presentations of new NMR potentialities will create a stimulating base for discussion and learning.
