Abstract

Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) is a relatively new and noninvasive method of functional brain mapping. Functional MRI is increasingly being applied to the study of neuropsychiatric disorders, including schizophrenia, Alzheimer's disease, traumatic brain injury, and others. Particularly noteworthy are findings related to plasticity in the adult human brain. Despite the promise of fMRI for improving the conceptualization, assessment, and treatment of neuropsychiatric disorders, important technical and scientific issues remain. Future research will address integrating fMRI with other emerging neuroimaging techniques.
