The Human MRI Unit
The Magnetom Prisma 3T scanner of Siemens is currently the world's best human neuroimaging scanner and is capable of exceptionally high temporal and spatial resolutions. The image quality is enhanced by the gradient performance of 80 milliTesla per meter combined with a 200T-per-meter-per-second slew rate. SCAN@TAU Center is residing on the Life Sciences campus of Tel Aviv University and brings dozen groups of imagers unparalleled abilities in terms of human structural and functional neuroimaging.
The Human MRI Unit has built new experiment rooms for behavior tasks and questionnaires, two of which are ready for EEG (electro-encephalography) and TMS (transcranial magnetic stimulation). The console itself includes all required equipment for the best functional imaging including an NNL LCD screen, Current Design response devices, in-ear headphones, EEG and BioPac ready for physiological data collection.
The new human scanner is one of only 10 systems installed world-wide and will ensure years of the best possible data collection. This research will lead to more effective treatment for neurological, neurodegenerative and psychiatric disorders.
