Understanding the Different Types of Functional Neuroimaging

Functional Neuroimaging is the use of Neuroimaging technology to measure an aspect of brain function, often with a view to comprehend the relationship between actions in certain brain areas and particular mental capacities. It is basically used as a research tool in intellectual neuroscience and Neuropsychology.

Some of the common methods of Functional Neuroimaging include Common methods include Positron Emission Tomography (PET), Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI), Multichannel Electroencephalography (EEG), Magnetoencephalography (MEG), Near Infrared Spectroscopic Imaging (NIRSI) and Single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT). These imaging techniques allow the neurologists to view activity or problems within the human brain, without invasive neurosurgery.

Functional Neuroimaging is worth more than you think. Can you imagine of recording your intimate thoughts on your wedding day or as your child is first being born or the dreams you forget soon after waking up?  It seems impossible, but the latest technique named Functional Neuroimaging for Memory Recording has actually made it possible.  MTT Neurotech is a US based company having a team of highly qualified and experienced neurologists who offer the recording of resting state magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans, providing clients real-time stream of consciousness and dream recording.

Thousands of people all around the world are suffering from chronic pain these days and till now there was no objective diagnostic tool to measure how much pain a patient is feeling. This was why the doctors had to rely on highly variable test reports that rate feelings of pain on a scale from 0 to 10.

Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) revolutionizes the way of measuring chronic pain. It can also be termed as Functional Neuroimaging to document pain. At Millennium Magnetic Technologies, we create a series of images to illustrate the patient’s pain for use in insurance and disability claims.
