Departmental Colloquium


Magnetic resonance imaging of neuronal function (fMRI) in the human brain and spinal cord

Patrick Stroman
Queen's Diagnostic Radiology & Physics

Time
 
Wed. January 19, 2005     12:30 PM     Stirling A

Abstract
 
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) capable of detecting physiological effects related to neuronal function in the brain has been developed over the past 15 years, and is known as fMRI. An overview will be presented of MRI methods and the specific application of fMRI. Research into methods to adapt these techniques for use in the spinal cord will be discussed, including the challenges to be overcome and current evidence that the results obtained arise from neuronal activity and related physiological effects.

Patrick Stroman is the Canada Research Chair in Imaging Physics in the Department of Diagnostic Radiology and the Centre for Neuroscience Studies at Queen's.

All are welcome. Refreshments will be available after the talk.
