Facilities


The Wellcome Trust Centre for Neuroimaging houses 3 research-dedicated Siemens Trio Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanners. All are equipped with facilities for audio and video projection, collection of subject responses and long range infra-red eye tracking. In addition, there are well-developed systems for simultaneous TMS/fMRI and MR sequences optimised for echoplanar imaging of different brain structures of interest.


In addition to MRI, a VSMMedTech Omega 275 Magnetoencephalography (MEG) system is also located in the scanning suite. This MEG has 275 axial gradiometers and is equipped with facilities for visual and auditory presentation and long range infrared eye tracking. The provision of MEG with its high temporal data acquisition complements the fMRI systems known for their high spatial resolution.


The centre is also home to a number of EEG systems, allowing simultaneous fMRI/EEG and TMS/EEG.


Behavioural testing rooms enabling neuropsychological and psycho-pharmacological studies complete the scanner suite.
