Functional MRI (fMRI) task-related

The lecture will cover the nature of BOLD response, optimizing pulse sequences for signal/contrast, inhomogeneity, and temporal/spatial resolution in relationship to task-related paradigms. Experimental design will be introduced, including block and event designs, within and between subject designs, and specialty designs (habituation, phase lag).
