Abstract : The development of the Plexiglas headholder device has continued. We have built our third prototype of the unit and have just begun testing its functionality. The initial uses of the unit in actual functional magnetic imaging (fMRI) subject runs has demonstrated some minor engineering problems associated with the lock-down mechanism to the MRI gurney table. Software development for the Functional Imaging System (FlS) core routines has been under continual improvement.
