Virginia Tech researchers have received a grant to deploy a new brain imaging technology called optically pumped magnetometry which can assist with studying the nuances of social interactions.
Researchers propose a new approach to neuroimaging studies. They suggest, rather than beginning with predefined behavioral functions and trying to assign associated brain regions, new studies should focus on selecting brain areas first and screen for potential behavioral associations.
Researchers suggest MRI could prove an effective tool in diagnosing mental illnesses such as bipolar disorder. Using advanced computational models, researchers were able to correctly distinguish bipolar patients from healthy individuals with 73% accuracy based on brain scans alone.
