Functional MRI (fMRI)

A Functional MRI (fMRI) is a brain imaging technique that detects magnetic changes in the brain’s blood flow patterns. This technique is a combination of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and Positron Emission Tomography (PET) scans and is useful for detecting changes in activation of different centers of the brain.This technique can be used to identify behavioral abnormalities that exist because of unusual activation of area of the brain.
