MRI in Neurosciences


Neuroscience has offered a fertile ground for many techniques to demonstrate their ability to probe the complex structure and function of brain. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a technique capable of revealing some of the mysteries of the brain including its intricate anatomy and physiology and manifesting diseases and disorders. Progress in MRI has shed light on the processes involved in brain development, diagnosis and treatment of neurological and neuropsychiatric diseases, and even gene-brain-behavior relationships. This special issue is dedicated to MRI in neuroscience which will cover the three major areas of (1) latest advancements in magnetic resonance, (2) application of MRI in neurobiology, and (3) clinical neuroradiological applications of MRI. We invite investigators to submit original research articles as well as review articles in these research areas. In recognition of the coming of age of MRI in neuroscience, this Call-for-Papers is organized around three strands. Potential topics include but are not limited to:

  • Technical MRI
    • High field MRI
    • Molecular imaging
    • Functional MRI
    • Diffusion tensor imaging
    • High resolution morphometry
    • RF technology
  • MRI of neurobiology
    • Population-based brain atlas
    • Disease-specific brain atlas
    • Statistical methods for brain fusion
    • Cognitive brain development
    • Monitoring efficiency of therapeutic techniques (TMS, ECT, etc...)
    • Neuropsychiatric disorders
    • Magnetic resonance imaging morphometry
  • Clinical applications: neuroradiological aspects of MRI
    • MR angiography in the diagnosis of intracranial vascular abnormalities
    • Advances in brain tumor imaging
    • Stroke
    • Multiple sclerosis
    • MRI in Alzheimer's and other neurodegenerative disorders
    • Susceptibility weighted imaging
