Biological bases

Do we have to know the different imaging techniques

I’d say it’s helpful to know them just in case for reference! They’re MRI, FMRI, EEG, CT, and PET!

MRI- Allows to see the details of the brain using magnetic fields
FMRI- Allows to see most detailed view of the brain; combines elements of PET and MRI
EEG- Used to measure brain waves
CT- X ray with different angles; allows to see different structures of the brain
PET- Allows to see brain activity by injecting radioactive glucose

Hope this helps!
