MRI Facility

 Opening Fall 2017

The Magnetic Resonance Imaging Facility will provide investigators with a state-of-the-art research environment, at the heart of which will be a 3 Tesla Siemens Prisma scanner equipped with 80 mT/m gradients and an all digital RF transmit/receive system with 64 independent channels.  The MRI Facility will also include:  MR compatible EEG; eye-tracking capabilities; back projection, LCD screen, and goggles for visual stimulation; physiological monitoring of:  cardiac, respiratory, oxygen, carbon dioxide, and perspiration signals; active noise cancelling headphones; an array of response boxes for fMRI experiments; and a mock scanner with identical response and stimulation equipment to help users prepare and participants train for their MRI studies.  The MRI Facility will be a vital resource for research in the areas of:  neuroscience, cognitive science, clinical research, pediatric developmental, aging, and disease.
