Measuring Neuronal Activity and Vascular Physiology in the Human Brain Using High-Resolution Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging


December 6, 2023

This American Physiological Society webinar provides a deep dive into the physics and physiology of Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI).

Key topics include:
  • How fMRI measures brain function by tracking hemodynamic changes caused by active vascular responses to neuronal activity.
  • Current understanding of the spatial and temporal resolution of hemodynamics-based functional imaging methods such as fMRI.
  • How vascular anatomy and physiology shape or influence the fMRI signals, and how to take this into account when analyzing and interpreting fMRI data.
  • How explicit models of realistic vascular anatomy and dynamics can help infer underlying neuronal activity using fMRI.
  • How fMRI can be used to measure vascular dysfunction in neurological disease.
