CIMeC - Center for Mind/Brain Sciences

The Neuroimaging Labs (LNiF) are committed to developing new techniques for imaging human brain and supporting their applications towards a more comprehensive understanding and better care of the human mind and body. This involves the development and continued improvement of new hardware, software and procedures for data acquisition, visualization and statistical analysis, and the application of these advancements to medically relevant investigation (with CeRiN).

Laboratories

MRI Lab: at the Magnetic Resonance (MR) lab it is possible to run MRI experiments through standard and multiparametric imaging research applications. The lab provides visual, auditory and tactile stimulators, and a team to develop new experimental set-ups and innovative MRI data acquisition methods to improve accuracy and sensitivity.

MEG Lab: at the Magnetoencephalography Lab (MEG Lab) we provide cutting edge scientific and technical support to people who wants to use MEG for their own research. The system allows for simultaneous recording of MEG and EEG, moreover the lab is equipped with cutting edge technologies allowing for a wide range of neuroscientific studies.

TBS Lab: the Transcranial Brain Stimulation lab (TBS lab), is a research facility that provides equipment, and technical services to cary out non invasive neuromodulatory research studies using transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) and transcranial electrical stimulation (tES, tDCS, tRNS, tACS). The Lab is also engaged in the possibility of therapeutic application of TMS or tES in clinical setting and in the use of TMS in combination with other methodologies, in particular EEG.
