Abstract

In the world we live in with all of our technological advances, we still have a relatively poor understanding of how the healthy human brain works, let alone how it is disfunctioning due to disease or injury. Our brain is one of the most complicated systems in the universe, which is exactly what makes it one of the last but most exciting scientific frontiers. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), for which Drs. Paul Lauterbur and Peter Mansfield won the 2003 Nobel Prize, is an ideal noninvasive imaging technique to see inside the human brain.
