This diversity, while positive in many ways, poses challenges for the field. A medical scientist might be well versed in neuroanatomy and practical uses of MRI , but not the theoretical basis for MR data acquisition or experimental design. Stated simply, the major challenge for explaining fMRI comes from its breadth.
We begin the textbook by establishing strong foundations in the physics and biology of fMRI. Any student, regardless of background, will find much new material throughout the text.
Without accurate, careful discussion of key concepts, any text especially one on such a youthful field risks mystifying its readers. Many of the most tantalizing ideas await empirical support and have not yet crystallized into guiding theory. Therefore, we introduce key concepts ill a logical, straightforward manner, with clear definitions of research jargon.
Throughout the book, we illustrate ideas by describing the primary research studies that support or disconfirm them. We present abstract ideas ill the context of real-world fMRI studies, so that students can make informed deci sions about research questions.
Finally, we present ideas in a format that can be easily understood by beglnnilg l researchers, whether undergraduate students, graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, or research faculty. We recognize that many aspects of fMRI seem very technical to those new to the field.
Yet these concepts are important and cannot be omitted simply to reduce the complexity of the book. The textbook contains 14 chapters, each covering a discrete aspect of fMRI, with a clear progression across topics. Throughout the book, a large number of exciting concepts are set aside ill boxes for special emphasis.
These boxes make ideal stepping-off points for instructors to delve more deeply into the literature. For example, elementary terms such as ion, neuron, central nervous system, and standard deviation are defined as they are first mentioned, effectively bringing even the most novice student up to speed.
The book progresses logically from MR scanners and signals to the connection between neuronal and hemodynamic activity to experimental design and statistical analyses while walking the reader through the relevant aspects of physiology and physics along the way. While Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging does not qualify its reader as capable of designing and executing groundbreaking experimentation with fMRI, it was not written for that purpose.
In fact, it achieves its intended goal very effectively: It lays the requisite groundwork for further study and gives the student a baseline familiarity with all of the terms and subjects likely to be necessary for a deeper understanding of fMRI. This text allows the reader to take their first step into the rapidly expanding field of cognitive neuroscience research enabled by fMRI and does so in a painless and all-inclusive fashion.
