Brain imaging methods can provide unique complementary knowledge that other methods cannot; namely, insights into what cognitive/perceptual/emotional mechanisms might produce the outcome demonstrated by common behavioral methods.

The main aim of this conference is to provide examples of cutting-edge brain imaging research in multiple fields exploring field-essential questions. Importantly, the conference is aimed towards being useful both for researchers with large and for those without any experience with brain imaging methods.
