X-Ray is a picture that shows structure. CAT scan is like 100 xrays at once and shows structure. EEG shows function via brain waves. PET scan shows function via consumption of radioactive glucose in the brain. MRI shows structure via magnetic rotation of atoms. fMRI shows structure and function via MRI and shows blood flow.

thank you!
