Tests of Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging Techniques
- Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) is used to study the brain. It takes a series of pictures that can be used to look at how the brain processes information. It is used to study problems with thinking, language, and movement, among other things. Researchers are working to develop new and better fMRI techniques. To test these techniques, they want to perform fMRI scans on healthy volunteers.
- To test different fMRI techniques in healthy volunteers.
- Healthy volunteers at least 18 years of age.
- Participants will be screened with a physical exam and medical history.
- Participants will have fMRI scans of the brain. During these scans, they will be asked to perform simple tasks. These tasks may involve language, thinking, or motor skills. The scanning sessions will last up to 2 hours.
- Participants may be asked to return for additional fMRI scans over several years.
