Cognitive Neuroimaging Center

The Cognitive Neuroimaging Center (CNC) contains a brand-new, state-of-the-art Siemens 3 Tesla Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scanner, which will serve faculty from schools/colleges and departments across BU’s sprawling neuroscience community—and from other universities around Boston—who study the brain. Within the CNC’s shielded walls, researchers can explore everything from the neural mechanisms for speech production to the long-term effects of head injuries sustained in contact sports to understanding how long- and short-term memory function. Their findings could be applied to such areas as Alzheimer’s disease and normal aging.
