Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) – Structural, Functional & Diffusion Tensor

Structural, Functional and Diffusion Tensor Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) are all non-invasive method of recording brain signals and a valuable tool for more precise localization of cognitive and affective processes. It uses strong magnetic fields and non-ionizing radiation in the radio frequency range to measure signal changes in the brain that are due to changing neural activity.

A recent addition to Baycrest’s MRI lab is the capacity to collect multimodal data, either EEG (Brain Products) or Eye Tracking (SR Research) in conjunction with fMRI data. These state-of-the-art simultaneous data collection systems offer the user an advantage in terms of data insight, quantity and quality.

Baycrest’s Siemens 3T Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scanner was obtained as a result of donations from the Weinbaum, Ross and Rotman families.
