Dr Alan Evans and a panel of experts discuss the past, present and future of brain imaging as a research tool.
The videotaped lecture provides an overview of brain imaging as a research tool and how brain-scanning technologies combined with sophisticated computational modelling can provide hitherto inaccessible information about what constitutes normal brain development and the impact of ageing diseases and mental illness.
