 fMRI used to identify neuronal networks activated by VTA or hippocampal CA3 stimulation
 
fMRI used to identify neuronal networks activated by VTA or hippocampal CA3 stimulationFunctional magnetic resonance (fMRI) imaging can provide insight into hemodynamic shifts that occur in blood, including blood volume, flow, and oxygenation. The technique can also be used to map neuronal networks and detect synchronized activities within the brain.
