fMRI Tips, Tutorials, Code, Examples
When I was a graduate student at Baylor College of Medicine, I found myself often in an embarrassing situation — I felt completely lost when my fellow graduate students heatedly discussed a paper in our field but I never heard of this publicati
我在Baylor College of Medicine读研究生的时候经常遇到一种尴尬局面，就是同学们在热烈讨论本领域某篇文献的时候，我一脸茫然 — 因为我压根就不知道这篇文章。回头Pub
When I was a graduate student in Baylor College of Medicine I participated in an “exercise and brain” study in our lab as a subject, and got my brain scanned every week for about 10 weeks. I thought it was crazy; but apparently it’s
I have a friend who has been using fMRI for more than 10 years and now a professor. He heard NIRS might be a good technology to measure human brain but knew little about it. So what is the difference between NIRS and fMRI? This is probably a common q
In concurrent NIRS-MRI experiments, you often need to know exactly where the NIRS probes are in the MRI iamges. In this case, a fiducial marker becomes important. In our 2011 publication titled “A quantitative comparison of NIRS and fMRI across
Is NIRS able to measure signal from deep brain structure, such as amygdala? The short answer is no. NIRS is only able to measure the surface of the brain. This is a serious limitation of NIRS compared to fMRI which is able to measure the entire brain
We know the hemodynamic signal measured by fMRI (or NIRS) is delayed respective to the onset of stimuli. But how long is the delay? Many people think it takes about 2s for the signal to arise. Actually the delay varies from region to region. As shown
If you are interested in the full package of xjview, including nirs related scripts, please fill the following form: Name Email If you are only interested in the display function of xjview, please go to https://www.alivelearn.net/xjview/ to download.
Many users have created masks from a T-test image; xjView also allows you to create a mask based anatomy. Say, if you want to create a mask of Amygdala, how to do that? (You need to use xjview 8.10. 1 min video demo at http://youtu.be/31q_6jumhhM) 1.
