Dynamic relationships of the visual cortex based on functional magnetic resonance imaging

Takeaway

  • Extensive connections exist in the human visual network during both resting and task-related states.

Why this matters

    Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) is a noninvasive technique which produces repeatable, high spatial resolution images. With the use of fMRI, the functional organization of the visual cortex within the human brain has become better understood. The results of this study will provide insight into the dynamics of the connectivity in the human visual cortex and may contribute to the understanding of ophthalmic diseases.
