Neuroimaging encompasses a variety of technologies that allow for non-invasive structural and functional measures of the brain at the systems and whole organism level. These technologies include specialized uses of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), such as functional MRI (fMRI), MR spectroscopy (MRS), and diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), as well as positron emission tomography (PET). These technologies can be applied to both human and animal studies, making them particularly useful for translational research.
