To assess whether DANTE-EPI (Delay Alternating with Nutation for Tailored Excitation) sequence for moving blood suppressed fMRI images can effectively reduce inflow effects and, physiological noise originating from intravascular blood signal, and spurious (false positive) functional activation resulting from draining vein effects. Results were compared with images from conventional gradient echo planar imaging (GE-EPI).
