Description

Discussing not only PET technique and instrumentation, but new developments in a broad range of fields such as kinetics, enzyme/neurotransmitter transport, language acquisition, and neuropathology, "Brain Imaging Using PET" will appeal to both PET experts and non-PET users in many branches of neuroscience. The authors offer an invaluable analysis of brain imaging and techniques, providing everything from the foundations to the practical applications of the modern techniques used in PET. It covers: head motion correction; tricks for PET imaging of monkeys and other animals; parametric images by quantification without arterial blood sampling; measurement of endogenous dopamine release; imaging acetylcholine esterase activity in Alzheimer patients; dopaminergic functions in Parkinson patients and animal models; new tracers for PET imaging of NK1, sigma-1 and other receptors; and, application of Bayesian, wavelet, cluster and other math techniques.
