A method for deconvolution of event-related fMRI scans to extract information on the hemodynamic response is described in detail. The method can be applied to whole-brain data sets acquired with standard echo planar imaging techniques. The method allows for slice-specific solutions which can have a temporal resolution much better than the TR of the scan. Demonstration of the method on real data will be given.
