The human midbrain and pons contain nuclei of major neurotransmitter systems that send long-range projections to regulate brain activity in cortical and subcortical structures. Despite being small structures, these nuclei are critically implicated in a very wide range of cognitive and bodily functions, and their dysfunction plays an important role in a number of neurological and neuropsychiatric conditions. Hence, there is a considerable interest to develop functional MRI approaches that allow to image their activity in health and disease.
