1. Background.



Brain function has always fascinated the scientific community. Throughout the 19th and 20th centuries, most of what was known about cortical representation of cerebral functions was acquired through pathology models or in vivo direct stimulation of the brain’s surface. More recently with the arrival of medical imaging methods, such as Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography (SPECT), Proton Emission Tomography – Computed Tomography (PET-CT) and functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI), we have a more physiologically based understanding of cerebral complexity. fMRI combines high anatomical resolution with information about cortical activation to obtain detailed maps of the specific areas involved in a given task [1].
