Does MUSC Really Need Research Physicists?
Ananda Shastri, PhD
Medical University of South  Carolina   


Research physicists?  At a hospital?  Whatever for?  Come find out
how physics priciples are applied in the Functional Neuroimaging
Research Division at MUSC.  The physics principles behind three
different tecniques will be discussed:

        Functional magnetic resonance imaging (imaging that reveals brain
        activation in response to a stimulus)

        Transcranial magnetic stimulation (a method of non-invasively
        activating the brain using Faraday's Law of induction)

        Electrodermal activity (the change in skin conductance that
        follows increased anxiety in humans)
