Abstract

The fourth fMRI Experience meeting was held at the Bethesda, Maryland campus of the National Institutes of Health on May 13th and 14th, 2002. The purpose of the meeting was to provide a platform for students working with functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to present their research to an international audience of peers. This year’s meeting featured special lectures from Dr. Leslie Ungerleider (“Imaging Mechanisms of Visual Attention”) and Dr. Daniel Weinberger (“Genetic Variation and fMRI Response”).
