The Center operates an advanced MRI laboratory equipped for anatomical, functional (BOLD and arterial spin labeling), diffusion-weighted, and spectroscopic imaging, and is equipped with an integrated electroencephalography (EEG) system, as well as an analysis core specializing in algorithms for modeling functional imaging and EEG datasets.
All systems functional.
