9780691160610: Looking Inside the Brain: The Power of Neuroimaging

It is now possible to witness human brain activity while we are talking, reading, or thinking, thanks to revolutionary neuroimaging techniques like magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). These groundbreaking advances have opened infinite fields of investigation―into such areas as musical perception, brain development in utero, and faulty brain connections leading to psychiatric disorders―and have raised unprecedented ethical issues. In Looking Inside the Brain, one of the leading pioneers of the field, Denis Le Bihan, offers an engaging account of the sophisticated interdisciplinary research in physics, neuroscience, and medicine that have led to the remarkable neuroimaging methods that give us a detailed look into the human brain.

Introducing neurological anatomy and physiology, Le Bihan walks readers through the historical evolution of imaging technology―from the x-ray and CT scan to the PET scan and MRI―and he explains how neuroimaging uncovers afflictions like stroke or cancer and the workings of higher-order brain activities, such as language skills. Le Bihan also takes readers on a behind-the-scenes journey through NeuroSpin, his state-of-the-art neuroimaging laboratory, and goes over the cutting-edge scanning devices currently being developed. Considering what we see when we look at brain images, Le Bihan weighs what might be revealed about our thoughts and unconscious, and discusses how far this technology might go in the future.

Beautifully illustrated in color, Looking Inside the Brain presents the trailblazing story of the scanning techniques that provide keys to previously unimagined knowledge of our brains and our selves.

From the Inside Flap:


"Written by the inventor of diffusion MRI, Looking Inside the Brain is a well-informed and accessible book that explores the major outcomes and breakthroughs of brain imaging."--Jean-Pierre Changeux, coauthor of The Good, the True, and the Beautiful and What Makes Us Think?


"Modern neuroscience provides daring insight into the incredibly complex organ that is the brain--insight based on vast volumes of data obtained by the most sophisticated technology. Le Bihan is uniquely qualified to tell the story of brain imaging, from both neurological and technical perspectives."--R. Nick Bryan, emeritus professor of radiology, University of Pennsylvania


About the Author:

Denis Le Bihan is internationally recognized for his contributions to the development of imaging methods for the study of the human brain. He is the founding director of NeuroSpin, an institute of the French Atomic Energy Commission dedicated to ultra-high-field brain imaging. He won the 2012 Honda Prize, Japan's international award for science and technology, and the 2014 Louis-Jeantet Prize for Medicine.
