Bringing together leading experts, this volume reviews cutting-edge applications of neuroimaging techniques in the study of brain injury, brain disease, and normal aging. It provides up-to-date descriptions of EEG, MEG, PET, and fMRI; discusses salient methodological issues; and presents significant clinical advances that have been brought about through the use of these procedures. Specific disorders addressed include epilepsy, aphasia, traumatic brain injury, multiple sclerosis, alcoholism, autism, schizophrenia, and stroke. Analyzing what functional imaging has revealed about the causes and mechanisms of sensory, motor, and cognitive disturbances associated with these conditions, the book also explores implications for improving cognitive rehabilitation.
