Recent advances in cognitive neuroscience methods reveal the potential of neuroimaging as be a useful tool in clinical and educational practice. In this review, we review the literature and provide evidence that functional and structural neuroimaging can detect changes with treatment. Further, we show promising initial results showing that the addition of neuroimaging measures can enhance conventional methods to predict outcome and prognosis. Examples are drawn from disorders such as attention-deficit / hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), depression, schizophrenia, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), temporal lobe epilepsy, Alzheimer disease and developmental dyslexia. This evidence raises the intriguing possibility of utilizing neuroimaging data as a critical component in assessing and predicting cognitive abilities and symptoms.
