Animal MRI

7T Bruker Animal Scanner

The Alfredo Federico Strauss Center for Computational Neuroimaging was inaugurated in May 2008 and features a Bruker Biospec 7T MRI scanner designed for small animals. Since its establishment, investigators from Tel Aviv University, other research and industrial facilities in Israel have conducted MRI experiments combined with behavioral tests and/or pharmacological interventions, which have led to dozens of publications.


The Animal MRI Unit resides adjacent to an animal facility for housing animals prior MRI scanning, and features an experiment room for behavioral tasks (such as Moris water maze task) and  an operation room including biological hoods and stereotactic devices for neurosurgery in animal experimentation.
