The Magnetic Resonance Imaging Facility
The MRI Facility features a Siemens Skyra 3 Tesla MRI scanner and capabilities for simultaneous use of a high-density electroencephalography (EEG) system and eye tracker.
These technologies respectively provide understanding of the locations within the brain activated while processing information, the speed with which information is processed, and how information comes into the brain through the eyes. The MRI Facility maintains a Siemens Master Research Agreement, making the facility part of a network of research imaging centers that have access to cutting-edge, research-grade MRI protocols and sequences. The MRI Facility is equipped with an MRI simulator, which mimics the sounds and experience of an MRI scan to help prepare some populations, such as children, for a real MRI.
