Applying magnetic resonance imaging techniques to studying how the brain works

Rishma Vidyasagar of Manchester University will tell us about research that tries to make the brain change (such as after consumption of tea and caffeine), and measuring what is happening in the brain non-invasively.
MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) scanners measure changes in cerebral blood flow in the brain. Part of her work is with Alder Hey Children’s Hospital, helping guide surgeons during brain surgery using their intraoperative magnetic resonance imaging scanner.
