I am interested in examining face and object recognition as well as the functional organisation of the ventral temporal lobes with masked priming techniques and functional magnetic resonance imaging coupled with multivariate pattern analysis.

Current resolution is 5mm so it is not that far off EPI resolution anyway. I have spoken to Paul about resolution and he seemed to suggest that it could be improved. Besides it is always possible to improve resolution if you are happy having longer volume acquisition times, or reduced coverage of the cortex.

Yeah, I think it has gotten somewhat better over the years though I'm not too sure - my memory of Paul's presentations is sketchy. I do know that some neurotransmitters can't be distinguished because they are too similar spectrally. I was very surprised since I hand't heard much about it before - it seems to be a very under studied area. I'll update this response once Paul publishes to include more details.
