Novel methods for brainstem FMRI

Abstract:

The brainstem plays a crucial role in a great number of vital functions such as respiratory regulation, visual reflexes, and the perception of pain. The small size and close proximity of the nuclei requires high-resolution functional magnetic resonance imaging (FMRI). However, brainstem FMRI using conventional gradient-echo echo-planar imaging (GRE-EPI) techniques is challenging due to the increased signal dropout and geometric distortions in the brainstem.

The primary aim of the wor...
