By Sara Kassabian The PLOS Neuro Community is gearing up for the Society for Neuroscience (#SfN15) 2015 annual meeting from October 17-21 in Chicago with a ‘PLOS Science Wednesday’ on October 14 that’s all about functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). PLOS will be at #SfN15, visit us at Booth #115 & tell us what you asked our fMRI experts on 10-14 PLOS Science Wednesday. Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) is a neuroimaging technique that uses MRI technology to measure activity in the brain by recording changes in blood flow. As outlined in a previous post, fMRI advances over other neuroimaging tools by its “superb spatial resolution, non-invasiveness, safety and minimal preparation time.” Yet, despite gaining popularity since the 1990s, this technique is still subject to several limitations, including “relatively poor temporal…
