The centerpiece of the FSU MRI Facility is a Siemens 3T Prisma scanner, which offers ultra-high spatial and temporal resolution to achieve outstanding image quality. The Prisma’s XR gradients and advanced shimming enhance applications such as functional MRI (fMRI), Diffusion Spectrum Imaging (DSI) and exceptionally high resolution anatomical details. The Prisma’s benchmark homogeneity and 64 RF receiver channels allow enhanced image quality and reduced motion induced disturbances. The Prisma enables scientists to explore bold new areas of research.
The MRIF also features behavioral testing space and computer workstations, as well as:
- a simulator (i.e., “mock scanner”), to acclimate participants to the imaging environment
- high density EEG/ERP system
- full psychophysiology recording suite for EOG, ECG, EMG, GSR
- eye tracker
- brain stimulation equipment
