Neuroimaging and Diagnostic Techniques

Neuroimaging is a technique that produces pictures of the brain without requiring surgery, an incision of the skin, or any direct contact with the inside of the body. The neuroimaging techniques allow noninvasive visualization of the structure and functionality of the brain. Neuroimaging has become an influential tool for both research and medical diagnosis.  While still young, the neuroimaging field has speedily progressed over the years due to innovations in technology and computational approaches. The main two in-vivo technologies are structural imaging and functional imaging.
