Ken Kwong回忆早期的fMRI研究


NeuroTimes | Nov. 30, 2015



fMRI的发明为神经科学研究开辟了新的领域。Ken Kwong是当时三个做人BOLD成像的人之一,1992年在PNAS上发表了“Dynamic magnetic resonance imaging of human brain activity during primary sensory stimulation.”

这篇文章里,Ken Kwong回忆了研究早期得到的fMRI灵感,研究过程和投稿过程。一开始文章被Nature拒掉,其中一个编辑直接表示不信。

 

“If the point of this paper is that MRI can be used to map the brain, this point has been made in the Science paper [by Belliveau et al.]. If the point of this paper is that MRI can shed new light on the regulation of cerebral hemodynamics and metabolism by neural activity, I am not yet convinced.”
