Question Posted 05/19/14:
Cloud you please help me to understand the new description \\\"Extended Resting State fMRI \\\"?

Thank you for your question to the ADNI MRI Core.

The Extended Resting State fMRI is the same sequence as before but instead of a 7 minute scan, the number of measurements were increased from 160 to 200 to allow for a 10 min fMRI scan. From the current literature a 10 min scan show much better functional connectivity than shorter scans. The ADNI MRI core is suggesting that groups who have studied the 7 min sequence can still do so by ignoring the additional measurements.

Thank you for your question.
