The tools of neuroimaging continue to improve at a rapid pace. Each technique possesses strengths and limitations. The various techniques each offer unique information. To fully understand the biological substrates of psychiatric disease, multiple neuroimaging and neurophysiological techniques must continue to develop and flourish. The goal of this chapter is to provide a solid understanding of methods frequently used in neuroimaging and neurophysiology.
- Computed tomography
- Diffusion tensor imaging
- Functional magnetic resonance imaging
- Magnetic resonance spectroscopy
- Positron emission tomography
- Single-photon emission computed tomography
