Description: Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and its functional counterpart, fMRI will be considered in the context of what it can tell us about addiction. As a toolbox, there will be an emphasis on the limitations and potentials of these techniques. The fMRI section will discuss the kinds of questions that can be addressed with fMRI and give some examples of studies of cue induced craving and decision making in stimulant abusers.
