fMRI scan – images body, more sophisticated x-ray, it sees soft tissue along with the
bone; the “f” in fMRI stands for functional, in psychology the function is important
When we speak, blood comes to the brain area used, the scan shows that when people are
engaged in arhyming task” the stats show that men have more activity on the left brain
fMRI is good at looking at spatial resolution, but not good with temporal resolution
