A 3.0 Tesla MRI system for human cognitive neuroscience research (2008–2009)

Abstract:
Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) has driven many of the most significant discoveries concerning the neural basis of human perception and cognition. This application seeks support for an fMRI system dedicated to basic research in cognitive neuroscience. The system will help to reveal the neural circuits underlying elementary perceptual processes, as well as higher cognitive functions such as learning, memory, decision making and language. It will also promote links between researchers in the behavioural and neural sciences, thus bringing together two historically separate disciplines. Situating the facility within a research intensive environment will offer unparalleled opportunities for innovation and training.
