This is how rodent fMRI is done - A community take on functional imaging in animal models

On Demand Session

Webinar Overview

Joanes Grandjean discusses the necessity for standardization in fMRI, starting out by referring to a study that shows 240 ways to preform fMRI, that clearly demonstrates this need. After his successfully published mouse multi-center study, he in this talk, describes his current resting state rat multi-center study comprising 50 rat fMRI datasets at 5 different field strengths. He concludes with a comparison of highest specificity in respect to field strength, gradient vs spin echo, and anesthesia.
