The book you are holding in your hands is a quite unusual neuroimaging textbook.
The participating authors attempted to provide the reader with a preview of the emerging applications of novel but also established neuroimaging techniques. The book is divided into three sections. The first section includes advanced MR-based techniques such as task-generated and resting functional imaging, brain morphometry, diffusion tensor imaging and fractional anisotropy tractography, and
proton spectroscopy, in evaluating brain anatomical structure and connectivity, but also various intracranial pathological entities. The second part presents a novel implementation of advanced neuroimaging techniques in evaluating the brain’s affective processing. The third section describes the applications of traditional and novel imaging techniques in clarifying various legal issues, while it outlines the role of neuroimaging in forensic medicine.
