Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) has revolutionized clinical brain mapping and has become the predominant functional neuroimaging technique since its original report by Belliveau and colleagues.1 The appeal of fMRI is attributable to several advantages that it offers over other functional neuroimaging techniques. Functional MRI is non-invasive; it is a rapid technique that offers the opportunity for repeated measurements of the same task to investigate response consistency, to compare activations across tasks, and to measure change over time.
