Advancing human neuroscience: encoding, decoding and neurofeedback using functional neuroimaging

This session covers the state-of-the-art in human functional neuroimaging. Non-invasive techniques based on magnetic resonance imaging provide whole-brain coverage, increasing temporal and spatial resolution, and various contrast mechanisms. Imaging combined with computational techniques opens powerful avenues for understanding brain function, diagnosing dysfunction, and developing new therapies. Panellists discuss intriguing results including where and which information is encoded in the brain, decoding the information from the imaging data, and using real-time measures as neurofeedback to regulate brain activity.
