Neuroimaging and Diagnostic Methods
Neuroimaging or brain imaging is the use of varied techniques to either directly or indirectly image the structure, function/pharmacology of the Nervous system. Neuroimaging technologies like Positron emission tomography, single-photon emission tomography, and magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) gave neuropsychologists and neuroscientists images of living, functioning brains. The Structural and Functional Neuroimaging are the types, where structural Neuroimaging provides brain’s anatomical structure and Functional Neuroimaging provides aspects of brain function. Direct measurement of diverse neurochemicals using neuroimaging techniques provides unique probes of neuronal integrity. Future heads towards the combination of imaging modalities by using advances in software and hardware.
