Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Since the breakthrough of functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) in the late 1980s, it has been applied in countless fields for scientific studies, including (but not limited to) brain encoding and decoding. In brain encoding studies, fMRI has been implemented for brain activation detection, connectivity, and adaptation studies. These methods have been applied in clinical, psychological, and cognitive studies and have led to revolutionary findings that help to explain the normal brain and the brain that is affected by various diseases. However, brain decoding or mind-reading techniques make up a relatively new research area, and algorithms have been designed to read people's thoughts from the brain. Based on fMRI and statistical methods, it is possible to read the mind if there are enough training datasets. This Special Issue aims to present the current findings dedicated to fMRI methods and their application to a wide range of scientific research topics in both clinical and psychological studies. It can be a new method for fMRI studies, and it can also be a new application of fMRI in basic scientific research fields. Our goal is for these works to contribute to the exchange of knowledge and ideas resulting in discoveries in multidisciplinary subjects using fMRI.

Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page.
