This book covers all major fMRI analyses with a level of mathematical depth that is appropriate for cognitive and brain scientists with some background in statistics. The author has the rare ability of explaining complex issues using intuitive and engaging prose. The perfect balance between conceptual intelligibility and mathematical rigor makes this an ideal textbook for undergraduate and graduate courses.

Understanding the complexities associated with the generation of brain function images is essential, but this information is often difficult to obtain. This lovely new book by Ashby is a major step in meeting that need. I recommend it with enthusiasm to new initiates to imaging as well as seasoned veterans.
