BME Lecture Report (Kruggel) Group 22 Grace Mao Due: December 6, 2007 Imaging the Brain The brain is the central control to the body, yet it still remains a mystery. The brain is so complex researchers continue to unveil secrets about it. By analyzing brain images some of the mysteries are revealed. Once more is discovered about the brain, more information about how the body functions is explained as well. Analyzing brain images allows the brain to explain the body. The more accurate the image of the brain is, researchers can determine more from it. Biomedical engineers ascertain for more ways to make that image clearer. Neuroimaging combines different methods to determine the structure and function of the human brain. Anatomical Medical Resonance Imaging (aMRI) captures nervous system imaging while the Functional Medical Resonance Imaging( fMRI) creates a low temporal resolution and monitors the hemodynamic response of the vascular system at the high spatial resolution. The Electro-Encephalography (EEG) examines the active populations of neurons that change in the local field potential. All of these methods combined allow individuals to connect structure with brain function
