Fundamentals of Functional Brain Imaging: A Guide to the Methods and their Applications to Psychology and Behavioral Neuroscience

Front Cover
CRC Press, Jan 1, 1998 - Psychology - 156 pages

This generously illustrated guide to functional imaging responds to the needs of non-specialists, professionals and students of psychology, cognitive neuroscience, psychiatry, behavioral neurology, and epistemology.  It enables them to understand the basic principles of the highly specialized and constantly evolving imaging technologies and to assess for themselves the contribution of these technologies to their respective fields.

Fundamentals of Functional Brain Imaging will be useful for practitioners and advanced students in psychology, cognitive neuroscience, and neuropsychology, residents in psychiatry and neurology, as well as the interested general public.
