ABSTRACT
The article reports on the development of a system known as functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) by the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Optics and Precision Engineering. It projects images of the person being scanned. Different scanning techniques are combined. A normal MRI image of the bone and soft tissue is provided and parts of the brain that are active at the time of the scan are shown.
