Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging has become a widely available
standard tool in Neuroscience. fMRI as we know it today started its
widespread use around 1995 with a series of seminal yet independent works,
demonstrating that fMRI can image the complex layout of visual cortex
through retinotopic mapping. While MRI hardware and sequences have evolved
dramatically in the 25 years since then, the techniques and applications in
neuroscience have not. Much alike the early work, most fMRI recordings
today use 3x3x3 mm, ignoring the potential modern scanners offer. In my
presentation I will talk about some basic concepts of noise in fMRI data,
resolution, the evolution of scanning, and how it allows us high resolution
fMRI today. I will then present some results from our latest work using
high resolution fMRI on how BOLD and retinotopic maps change over cortical
