A binocular pair of fiberscopes relays high-resolution images of CRT displays from an adjacent room to an observer lying in a scanner in functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) studies of visual function. We review the problems that must be overcome by any visual display for use in fMRI, present the specific solution we developed, and discuss its merits. Together, the fiberscope and CRT conveniently display accurately controlled high-and low-contrast wide-field images to an observer in an fMRI scanner.
