Function Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI)

Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) is a brain-scanning technique that measures blood flow in the brain when a person performs a task. fMRI works on the premise that neurons in the brain that are the most active (during a task) use the most energy. An fMRI creates a dynamic (moving) 3D map of the brain, highlighting which areas are involved in different neural activities.
