Abstract

As a result of recent technological advances in the field of functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), the results can now be made available in real-time. This makes completely new applications possible. In this review, we discuss the technical requirements and new applications of real-time fMRI. In particular, we elaborate on the possibility to learn to voluntarily control brain activity in circumscribed brain areas with the help of fMRI-based neurofeedback. In addition, we consider real-time fMRI for brain-computer interfaces to communicate with vegetative state patients, as well as intraoperative real-time fMRI.
