The Neurosciences Preclinical Imaging Lab (NPIL) at the Wu Tsai Neurosciences Institute welcomes researchers from across Stanford schools and departments to its annual symposia, geared toward increasing accessibility of brain imaging technologies to scientists throughout campus.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is a central technique in neuroscience, enabling researchers to peer deep into the brain to measure neural anatomy and map functional brain networks. But the technique, centered in the physics of electromagnetism and requiring access to a large, expensive MRI scanner, can feel forbidding to researchers without prior exposure to the technology.
“We encourage neuroscientists across Stanford who haven’t used MRI before to start using the Neurosciences Preclinical Imaging Lab. It is a great resource for scientists interested in applying our technologies to their research,”
