Transcript of MRI anf FMRI

By: Ashley Wobith and Deaundre Tolber FMRI & MRI (functional) Magnetic
Resonance Imagery MRI- studies brain anatomy (BOLD)- Blood Oxygen Level Dependent measures neural activity

Increase in neural activity-increase in blood oxygen-increase in fMRI signal FMRI- Studies Brain Functions An MRI is used to find problems like tumors, bleeding, injuries, blood vessel diseases and infections. Commonly used for the brain Used to detect blood flow, emotions, and as a lie detection An MRI uses a big magnet to cause the hydrogen particles to assemble, then they use radio waves to knock the hydrogen nuclei out of place. After they have been scrambled they turn off the radio waves and it will show us the insides based on the time it takes to get back to its original pattern The Limitations are the Cost. The cost depends on what you get a MRI or FMRI on.
