This book presents an introduction to the foundational issues in human brain mapping, focusing on the emerging trends in the field of neuroimaging. It presents an overview of the methodological problems concerning the nonindependence of the samples and discusses the trend related to the foundational nature of the neuroimaging data. The book describes the trend, focusing on a new data structure involving graphs and methods relying on computer science and machine learning. This section presents an intersection between brain localization and statistical measurement, and also addresses the controversies related to correlations of functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) data and social attributions. Finally, it looks into the challenges faced by the field of neuroimaging.

Keywords:   human brain mapping, neuroimaging, fMRI data, graphs
