Furthers studies should compare the brain structural changes across different IAD subtypes to determined whether such changes are specific to on-line activities, or caused by uncontrolled use of the Internet per se. 6 Summary and Perspectives Taken together, the structural MRI studies available thus far clearly demonstrated that Internet addiction is associated with anatomical abnormalities in the brain involving both GM and WM. Reduced GM density/volume and cortical thickness are consistently observed in the PFC and insula of the subjects addicted to the Internet, who also showed impaired microstructural integrity in the WM tracts that connect to the PFC.

1996). The diffusion of water molecules in a homogenous compartment, such as CSF, is isotropic, and can be characterized simply by a single diffusion coefficient. , membranes and other biological barriers). For instance, in the WM fibers, the water molecules would diffuse more quickly along the fibers than perpendicular to the fibers. As a result, more complicated models need to be used to characterize the anisotropic diffusion properties of water molecules in the biological tissues. 26 F. Lin and H.

2010). , the difference in magnetic susceptibility between oxyhemoglobin and deoxyhemoglobin, enable indirect study of hemodynamic changes based on variation in magnetic signals (Huettel et al. 2009). By comparing MR signals obtained while the subject is resting and while the subject is performing a specific task, this technique can reveal hemodynamic changes related to a specific neuro-cognitive response. For evaluating mechanisms of psychiatric disorders, fMRI is preferable to PET and SPECT because it does not require radiation exposure.
