Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging.
S. A. Huettel, A. W. Song, and G. McCarthy, April 2004, ISBN 0-87893-288-7.
Supplementary readings are also suggested for those of you with less background in the areas of neuroscience and statistics.
The supplementary readings and course texts are on reserve in the Hayden library.
Ask the librarian for the material left on reserve for HST-583.
