Abstract: Knowledge of thermal and/or conductivity local changes inside the brain may provide useful information about brain activity. Microwave radiometry may be able to monitor such changes. Based on previous research in brain mapping using microwave radiometry a new prototype near field radiometry system has been used to detect local changes of temperature and conductivity in brain phantom experiments which are herein presented.
