"This ambitious book successfully brings together the latest information on many aspects of functional imaging. ...The book makes a very interesting read, and not only discusses the advantages of, but also the problems with, current functional imaging research."
-Kate Mayall, University of Birmingham, in VISUAL COGNITION (1999)
"Because this has been the pre-eminent lab for the development of functional positron-emission tomography (PET) analysis methods and has been productive in a wide variety of scientific areas, their view of the world is of interest... Human Brain Function is a successful milestone of the time, providing a view from the Functional Imaging Laboratory (FIL) of where we are with neuroimaging and what neuroimaging has contributed to the understanding of the human brain."
-Mark Hallett, Human Motor Control Section, National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, Nation Institutes of Health, TRENDS IN NEUROSCIENCES (1998)
"...the authors are all well-known experts in the field... overall quality is excellent. This book beautifully demonstrates how useful brain imaging can to be scientists...This is a great book to catch up on important recent brain-imaging literature, suitable for both those already involved in brain imaging and those just interested in sharing the thrilling achievements of this new discipline."
-Riitta Hari, Brain Research Unit, University of Helsinki, TRENDS IN COGNITIVE SCIENCES (February 1998)
"Human Brain Function brings together the latest information about brain mapping into one succinct, multidisciplinary volume... [It] is a seminal work of immense value and importance for medical students, researchers, technicians, physicians, and psychiatrists."
-THE MIDWEST BOOK REVIEW
"...Finally, it is our view that this is a book that should be offered to brilliant young students before they choose their field of research."
-J.Cl. Gautier, Ch. Duyckaerts, ANALYSES DE LIVRES ET DE REVUES
