Ct or cat this was one of the first imaging technologies that revolutionized brain study in the 1970s it is still used today in hospitals and healthcare settings to diagnose brain disorders, tumors, and trauma to the brain. Diffusion imaging maps the largely inaccessible tangle of the brain's white matter-the long, thin fibers that ferry nerve signals between cells diffusion imaging is a new twist on mri that uses magnetic resonance signals to track the movement of water molecules in the brain. Critics have argued that while neuroimaging may be flashy and exciting, its contributions to psychological theory are, so far, limited even with expensive technologies and tools, it turns out that understanding the brain isn't as clear cut as researchers might have hoped. Imaging is now becoming an increasing important tool in both clinical and research a wide range of imaging techniques commercially available provides sensitivity to visualization of brain structure and function from the level of individual molecules to whole brain.
Neuroimaging or brain imaging is the use of various techniques to either directly or indirectly image the structure, function/pharmacology of the nervous system it is a relatively new discipline within medicine , neuroscience , and psychology [1. The henry j wheeler jr brain imaging center (affectionately referred to as ‘the bic’) is a hub for cutting-edge neuroscience research at berkeley the bic community is a diverse one, with its users calling departments across campus their home in neuroscience, psychology, vision science.
