Neuroanatomical atlas

Feroze B. Mohamed, Scott H. Faro

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


In this chapter we have displayed several important areas of normal - functioning adult brain images generated using fMRI BOLD imaging. The fMRI shown here highlight areas of brain activation arising from simple motor tasks, visual functions, auditory and complex language, and listening paradigms. A somatotopic fMRI mapping of the human motor cortex was created for the foot, knee, trunk, shoulder, wrist, hand, face, tongue, and abdomen. The fMRI experiments in these conditions were carried out by simple box-car type block design experiments. These included a rest condition where no activity was performed, followed by an activation period where the subject was asked to perform a specific task. The representation of visual function, as well as language and auditory areas, were also obtained using a block design.
