was used to detect the neurotoxicity in the rat brain
caused by acute kainic acid administration. The T
were quantified using three methods: 1) simple
threshold; 2) statistical parametric mapping; and 3)
difference with the own baseline. It was shown that
method #3 has the most sensitivity towards the detection
of the neurotoxic changes of the rat brain.
