Siemens 3T Prisma Scanner

Scanner
Scanner

A Siemens MAGNETOM Prisma scanner was installed in March 2017, with funding from the National Science Foundation. This system is a state-of-the-art, whole-body superconductive Zero Helium Boil-off 3T magnet with a XR 80/200 gradient system with a 64 channel head coil.
Researchers: Technical questions about the imaging system and questions about using the system (safety and training requirements, rates, booking time)  can be sent to Dr. Jason Bohland (jbohland@bu.edu) and Dr. Chantal Stern (chantal@bu.edu).

Projection System

The 3T scanner is equipped with a VPixx Technologies PROPixx Lite Projector system (VPixx Technologies Inc., Quebec, Canada).
Researchers: Technical questions about the projection system can be sent to Dr. Jason Bohland (jbohland@bu.edu) and Dr. Sam Ling (samling@bu.edu).

Eyetracker

The 3T scanner is outfitted with an EyeLink 1000 Plus Eyetracker (SR Research, Ottawa, Canada).
Researchers: Technical questions about the eyetracker can be sent to Dr. Sam Ling (samling@bu.edu).

Auditory System

The 3T scanner is equipped with Sensimetrics S14 Insert earphones.
Researchers: Technical questions about the auditory system can be sent to Dr. Jason Bohland (jbohland@bu.edu) and Dr. Tyler Perrachione (tkp@bu.edu).

Physiological Monitoring System

The 3T scanner is outfitted with a BIOPAC System (BIOPAC Systems, Inc. Goleta, CA) for physiological monitoring. This is a MAC-compatible system providing MRI-compatible physiological monitoring.
Researchers: Technical questions about the BIOPAC System can be sent to Dr. Jason Bohland (jbohland@bu.edu) or Dr. Joe McGuire (jtmcg@bu.edu).

fNIRS

In collaboration with the Neurophotonics Center, the Cognitive Neuroimaging Center has fNIRS equipment available. Researchers interested in using fNIRS can contact Dr. David Boas (dboas@bu.edu).

Cognitive Neuroscience Research Rooms

The Center has rooms available for behavioral, cognitive, and neuropsychological research. Rooms are set up with tables, chairs, and data ports for hooking up laptops. Researchers interested in using the Cognitive Neuroscience Research Rooms can contact Dr. Chantal Stern (chantal@bu.edu) and Dr. Jason Bohland (jbohland@bu.edu).

Shielded Physiological Research Rooms

The Center has shielded rooms available for behavioral, cognitive, and neuropsychological research using EEG, tDCS, and fNIRS. Researchers with equipment who are interested in using these rooms can contact Dr. Chantal Stern (chantal@bu.edu) and Dr. Jason Bohland (jbohland@bu.edu). Shared equipment will be purchased in the future once we’ve established a user base, so if you have specific needs please contact Drs. Stern and Bohland.
