MRI in Psychiatry

This is the first comprehensive textbook on the use of MRI in psychiatry covering imaging techniques, brain systems and a review of findings in different psychiatric disorders. The book is divided into three sections, the first of which covers in detail all the major MRI-based methodological approaches available today, including fMRI, EEG-fMRI, DTI, and MR spectroscopy. In addition, the role of MRI in imaging genetics and combined brain stimulation and imaging is carefully explained. The second section provides an overview of the different brain systems that are relevant for psychiatric disorders, including the systems for perception, emotion, cognition, and reward. The final part of the book presents the MRI findings that are obtained in all the major psychiatric disorders using the previously discussed techniques. Numerous carefully chosen images support the informative text, making this an ideal reference work for all practitioners and trainees with an interest in this flourishing field.


Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and electroencephalography (EEG) are very important and complementary modalities since fMRI offers high spatial resolution while EEG provides a direct measurement of neuronal activity with high temporal resolution. Interest in the integration of these two types of data is growing rapidly as it promises to yield important new insights into human brain activity, as has already occurred in the case of epilepsy. Indeed, it seems certain that integrated EEG-fMRI will play an increasing role in neuroscience and in the clinical study of various brain disorders. This book discusses in depth all aspects of EEG-fMRI, including physiological principles and technical and methodological issues such as EEG artefact reduction methods, image quality, and data analysis strategies. Detailed consideration is given to all potential applications, primarily in the fields of sleep research, cognitive neuroscience, and clinical neurology and psychiatry. All of the authors are recognized experts in the field, and the text is supported by numerous informative illustrations.
