Some historical stuff – Functional Imaging before Functional Imaging


Torello, M. W., Phillips, T., Hunter, W. W., Jr. & Csuri, C. A. Combinational Imaging. Journal of Clinical Neurophysiology 4, 274–293 (1987). PDF

Volumetric brain oblique. Rendered on a Pixar Image Computer, circa 1987. This is a schizophrenic male, we did work on mapping EEG data onto the volumetric data, the first ‘functional’ combinational imaging that I am aware of. This all pre-fMRI.

This particular image is from the Pixar Image Computer’s CHAP Volumes software, which I worked on when I first got to Pixar in ’87.
