Advances in Psychology: fMRI
Functional brain imaging techniques, functional magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), are now central to evaluating organized neural systems in task-driven and resting states, in both healthy and pathological conditions. Behind the scenes of modern neuroimaging is the quest for an understanding of the functional organization of the human brain, using techniques to assess changes in brain circulation. Today, we will discuss human brain and fMRI in detail.

Advances in Psychology: ERPs
Event-Related Potentials (ERP) use electrodes that are attached to the scalp, as with EEG. However, the key difference is that a stimulus is presented to a participant (for example a picture/sound) and the researcher looks for activity related to that stimulus.

Advances in Psychology: R statistic
R is a powerful language and environment for statistical computing and graphics which is widely applied in science research. R provides a variety of statistical (linear and nonlinear modelling,clssical statistical tests, time-series analysis, classification, clustering,...) and graphical techniques. R is available as free software and compiles and runs on UNIX platforms, windows and MacOS.

Advances in Psychology: Experimental Design
In an experiment, we deliberately change one or more process variables (or factors) in order to observe the effect the changes have on one or more response variables. The (statistical) design of experiments (DOE) is an efficient procedure for planning experiments so that the data obtained can be analyzed to yield valid and objective conclusions.
