GRAMMATICO, Daniela  and  ROMERO, Carlos. Áreas corticales elocuentes: estudio con RMF. Bases fisiológicas, procedimiento y aplicaciones clínicas. Rev. argent. neurocir. [online]. 2010, vol.24, suppl.1, pp. S107-S109. ISSN 1850-1532.

The knowledge of the brain functional anatomy is useful to link specific symptoms with the lesion´s location in specific areas. Functional MRI is a non-invasive diagnostic tool able to visualize brain function with a technique named BOLD(blood oxygenation level dependent). The most important indication of fMRI is for presurgical planning in patients with brain tumors, moreover this technique can use to study language lateralization, memory and neuroplasticity, among other functions.

Keywords : Brain functional anatomy; fMRI; BOLD.
