Neuroimaging or brain imaging is the use of various techniques to either directly or indirectly image the structure, function/pharmacology of the nervous system. It is a relatively new discipline within medicine, neuroscience, and psychology. Neuroimaging falls into two broad categories: Structural imaging, which deals with the structure of the nervous system and the diagnosis of brain tumor (and injury); Functional imaging, which is used to diagnose diseases.
