- Changes in brain activity (fMRI) [ Time Frame: Continuous for 20 minutes after drug administration ]Changes in brain activity will be assessed using blood-oxygenation level dependent [BOLD] techniques.
- Changes in brain connectivity (fMRI) [ Time Frame: Continuous for 20 minutes after drug administration ]Changes in within- and between-network connectivity strength of several brain networks will be assessed via analysis of blood-oxygenation level dependent [BOLD] data.
