The 1990s have been designated by congress and the president as the decade of the brain, in part due to recognition of the expansion of knowledge and technology in the realm of neuroscience. Functional neuroimaging encompasses the technique of electrophysiology (EEG), magnetoecephalography (MEG), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and positron emission tomography (PET). Through these techniques, high resolution, 3 dimensional anatomical information can be obtained ofthe brain and it's functioning in normal and diseases states. Neuroscientists everywhere use neuroimaging in research, and these techniques are also used regularly by clinicians, and increasingly by biopsychologists. Given the increase in the number of techniques, and their diversity of applications, there is a need for a comprehensive volume to address both the technology and function of their use.
* Addresses the technical problems of image registration
* Compares different approaches to inter-subject and intra-subject analysis
* Explores the synergestic advantages of multivolume integration
* Divided into four sections devoted to relevant, timely issues

The 1990s have been declared the decade of the brain, and with this declaration have come new technologies for understanding brain structure and function. Neuroimaging has provided the means for visually identifying active brain structures in living humans. It provides the most dynamic tool available for witnessing the functional and dysfunctional brain. Edited by recognized experts in neuroscience, this book addresses the technical problems of image registration and intersubject and intra subject analysis, and explores the synergistic advantages of multimodal integration.
Section I discussed statistical analysis of results and neural network modeling. Section II addresses technical issues associated with techniques such as factors of blood flow metabolism. Section III investigages database management, and Section IV covers multimodel integration.
"The intended readership of (methodologically motivated) neuroscientists, graduate students, psychologists, neuropsychologists, neurologists, neurosurgeons, radiologists, psychiatrists, and those interested in the use of MEG, EEG, MRI, and PET to study brain function will find it a valuable source volume and an excellent, if technical, overview of the current status of the field."

"...it remains one of the most informative and useful publications in the field and can certainly be recommended to anyone entering the area and wanting to gain an appreciation of the technical aspects and methodological problems in functional neuroimaging."
