There are different modal characters of functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) visuals engaged in the cognitive neuroscience laboratory—gesturing, listening, touching, and moving—of which this chapter emphasizes one: Listening to the sound. The author explains this concept with the illustration of real-time experience in the fMRI laboratory. The subject of the fMRI scanner and scanning machine sound covered in the chapter helps to explain the acoustic character of fMRI and in the apprenticeship of students' hands-on learning. The conclusion of the chapter explains the importance of acquiring this knowledge in the practice of brain digital imaging.

Keywords:   modal characters, cognitive neuroscience laboratory, scanner sound, hands-on learning, acoustic character, brain digital imaging
