Unlike the traditional MRI, which is when you're placed in one of those large machines and someone takes a picture of, say, your knee - much like an x-ray - functional MRI is when you're in that machine and a doctor tells you to bend your knee while he watches how your brain changes - and that doctor could be 5,000 miles away.
