Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


Current brain imaging techniques, such as computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), provide noninvasive, high-resolution images that depict fine anatomic structure and delineate pathology by control of image contrast and sensitivity to the physicochemical microenvironment. These methods, although invaluable for the identification, characterization, and localization of lesions, do not provide any assessment of the functional viability of brain tissues, nor of the spatial organization of sensory, motor, and cognitive systems. However, such additional functional information is of great significance to the clinician in the determination of treatment strategies and patient management.
