Neuroimaging of Brain Networks and Function

Description

The human brain consumes about 20% of the body’s energy, most of which is spent on the resting brain activities. Recent advances in functional brain imaging have introduced new concepts and modalities to assess brain function at resting states as well as during tasks, which attracted enormous research interest in the past years. We invite investigators to contribute original research articles as well as review articles that will stimulate the continuing efforts to understand brain networks and function using various neuroimaging methods. We are particularly interested in articles describing advances in developing new imaging concepts and techniques, data analysis methods for measuring resting brain networks and function, new insights into alterations in brain networks and function in both normal and clinical populations, and integration of neuroimaging with other research modalities particularly genetics for understanding individual differences in resting brain function and behavior. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Development and validation of new neuroimaging concepts and modalities
  • Development and validation of new neuroimaging data analysis methods
  • Integration of neuroimaging with other research modalities including genetics
  • Individual differences in resting brain function
  • Relationships between resting brain function and behavioral performance
  • Relationships between resting brain function and task activation
  • Resting brain function changes associated with training and brain stimulation
  • Resting brain function changes in preclinical and clinical populations

Before submission authors should carefully read over the journal’s Author Guidelines, which are located at http://www.hindawi.com/journals/bmri/guidelines/. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal Manuscript Tracking System at http://mts.hindawi.com/submit/journals/bmri/radiology/netfu/ according to the following timetable:
