Task-based functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) is commonly used for presurgical planning to help identify areas of eloquent cortex. More recently, our group and others have explored the use of resting state fMRI as an alternative method for mapping brain function. In this chapter, we review the concept of resting state networks, some of the more commonly used preprocessing methods, our specific clinical protocols, and the use of a multilayer perceptron to identify resting state networks in individual patients. We also review some of the literature on the clinical use of resting state networks for presurgical planning, and the expected differences seen in the mapping results between task and resting state fMRI.
