Objetive Assessment of olfactory function using Functional Magnetic Resonance (fMRI). A device for generating automated olfactory stimuli
In this work, a device for generating automated olfactory stimuli in functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) studies is described. The novel issues of our design are: synchronization between the acquisition and the olfactory task, automated control of experimental parameters (odorants sequences, frequency, time and concentration of stimuli). Finally, we present the preliminary results obtained on a General Electric 3 Tesla MRI scanner belong to The Alzheimer Project of the Fundación Reina Sofía.
