Brain Scan methods allow neuroscientists to see inside the living brain. These methods help neuroscientists to understand the relationships between specific areas of the brain and their functions, to locate the areas of the brain that are affected by neurological disorder and to develop new strategies to treat brain disorders. CT scan. MRI, fMRI, PET scan etc. are common brain imaging methods.
Certain types of brain scans use a special dye, called contrast, to help areas of interest show up better. Contrast dye is usually injected into the body before the scan starts. With the exception of those requiring an injection of contrast dye, scans are relatively painless—like getting a picture taken. The hardest part for some people is to sit or lie still for a long time.
