Keith talks with Peter Bandettini, Chief of the Section on Functional Imaging Methods, Director of the Functional MRI Core Facility, National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH). Peter talks about how regular MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) works, and about the ways Functional MRI could further reveal how our brains process information. Peter also explains that we might be able to learn more about the brain by studying it in its resting state than when it is active. http://fim.nimh.nih.gov/people/peter-bandettini-phd
