This disclosure provides systems, methods, and apparatus related to functional magnetic resonance imaging. In one aspect, a method may include generating a bulk magnetization in a subject, establishing a longitudinal relaxation time constant (T.sub.1) contrast between constituents in the subject, creating spatially localized magnetic resonance (MR) signals from the subject, detecting the MR signals, and generating a functional image of the subject.
