fMRI: applications to cognitive neuroscience
This chapter provides an exhaustive review of functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) studies of cognitive function or of the achievements of this field as a whole. It focuses paradigmatically on the areas where fMRI has augmented existing knowledge obtained using other techniques via the combination of its particular technical properties, and their innovative application to the solution of diverse and novel problems in the field of human cognition and on the areas where fMRI has superseded alternative methodological approaches by providing more accurate, faster, safer or more cost-effective information than was previously available. The chapter addresses each of these areas and evaluates their current relevance to, and future impact on, our understanding of normal cognitive function in humans.
