Image of the Day

The images that appear in the "Image of the Day" are selected for the freshness of their views on Brain Mapping, their esthetic appeal, their quirkiness, or someimes just to prod you into thinking about the field and its context. Their appearance here is not an endorsement of their subject matter.

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation

Functional brain mapping may be performed using a trans-cranial magnetic stimulation device. This coil generates magnetic field impulses which stimulate underlying nerve cells in a focused volume. By measuring responses to the stimulations and tracking the position of the coil relative to the MR scan we generate functional maps of the brain in a low-cost, non-invasive, and accurate manner. The LEDs placed on the face in the image below are used to track the position of the patient during the procedure, so that the patient's head does not have to be fixed.
