This book brings together the latest information about brain mapping into one multi-disciplinary and succint volume. Human Brain Function provides a thorough background into the methods which obtain new data, as well as detailing each of the major areas of new discoveries in non-invasive brain mapping. In the decade since the application of new imaging methods in functional imaging, new results in perception, cognition, plasticity, and motor function have been uncovered, and are discussed in detail in this timely book. Features: * Contains a thorough explanation of statistical parametric maps * Covers the field of functional imaging and cognitive neuroscience * Features completely up-to-date research * Presents new research in brain mapping

Review quote

"This ambitious book successfully brings together the latest information on many aspects of functional imaging. ...The book makes a very interesting read, and not only discusses the advantages of, but also the problems with, current functional imaging research."" Kate Mayall, University of Birmingham, in VISUAL COGNITION (1999)"Because this has been the pre-eminent lab for the development of functional positron-emission tomography (PET) analysis methods and has been productive in a wide variety of scientific areas, their view of the world is of interest... Human Brain Function is a successful milestone of the time, providing a view from the Functional Imaging Laboratory (FIL) of where we are with neuroimaging and what neuroimaging has contributed to the understanding of the human brain."" Mark Hallett, Human Motor Control Section, National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, Nation Institutes of Health, TRENDS IN NEUROSCIENCES (1998)..".the authors are all well-known experts in the field... overall quality is excellent. This book beautifully demonstrates how useful brain imaging can to be scientists...This is a great book to catch up on important recent brain-imaging literature, suitable for both those already involved in brain imaging and those just interested in sharing the thrilling achievements of this new discipline."" Riitta Hari, Brain Research Unit, University of Helsinki, TRENDS IN COGNITIVE SCIENCES (February 1998)"Human Brain Function brings together the latest information about brain mapping into one succinct, multidisciplinary volume... [It] is a seminal work of immense value and importance for medical students, researchers, technicians,physicians, and psychiatrists."" THE MIDWEST BOOK REVIEW..".Finally, it is our view that this is a book that should be offered to brilliant young students before they choose their field of research."" J.Cl. Gautier, Ch. Duyckaerts, ANALYSES DE LIVRES ET DE REVUES
