Description: This book brings together the latest information about brain mapping into one multi-disciplinary and succint volume. Human Brain Function provides a thorough background into the methods which obtain new data, as well as detailing each of the major areas of new discoveries in non-invasive brain mapping. In the decade since the application of new imaging methods in functional imaging, new results in perception, cognition, plasticity, and motor function have been uncovered, and are discussed in detail in this timely book.
Features: KEY FEATURES: * Contains a thorough explanation of statistical parametric maps * Covers the field of functional imaging and cognitive neuroscience * Features completely up-to-date research * Presents new research in brain mapping
