Project Year: 2004 - 2007    Investigator(s): Mamoru TAMURA
To clarify whether a strong static magnetic field affects brain activity such as arousal level, we compared the electroencephalography (EEG) inside an MRI scanner in the presence/absence of the static magnetic field in two different arousal levels...

Project Year: 2000 - 2001    Investigator(s): 山本 徹, Hiroyuki DATE
The purpose of this study was to improve the detectability of brain activated area in functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). In fMRI, influence of cardiac pulsation is the most difficult factor to be eliminated for enhancing the detectabili...
