The Center for Functional Neuroimaging Technologies is a Regional Resource located at the Athinoula A. Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging at the Massachusetts General Hospital. The primary mission of the Center is to expand understanding of the human brain in health and disease through the development and dissemination of innovative multimodal Magnetic Resonance (MR)-based neuroimaging techniques and technologies. The Resource is sponsored by the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering of the NIH.
Research at the Center for Functional Neuroimaging Technologies centers around four interrelated technical development projects, each focused on creating and improving multimodal methods for functional brain imaging.
Collaborative projects have been selected that address relevant problems in neuroscience research while synergistically advancing the technical capabilities of the Regional Resource itself. Many of these collaborations are with industrial partners. Scientists from a wide range of disciplines use the services of the Center to apply advances in neuroimaging to their own research efforts. The Center for Functional Neuroimaging Technologies welcomes collaborations with and provides a unique resource to investigators from throughout the world neuroscience community. We offer a variety of training opportunities for students, fellows and junior scientists as we seek to advance the field of brain mapping through the active dissemination of new neuroimaging technology.
