Neuroimaging in Psychiatry and Neurology: Current Status and Future Directions

Rajendra D. Badgaiyan and Kenneth Blum

Abstract

Modern neuroimaging techniques have made a significant contribution to our understanding of human brain and its regulatory mechanisms. These techniques however are limited by their ability to detect only a few dimensions of the brain physiology. There is therefore a need to expand the scope of neuroimaging to allow detection of all known dimensions of the brain activity. There is also a need to explore newer dimensions that affect and regulate brain function. Lastly, the focus of studied on the brain disorders is often directed to symptoms or syndromes which prevents us from understanding real neuropathology. There is therefore a need to change the approach and study brain disorders using neuroscientific techniques, psychological concepts, and philosophical vision.
