Access to MRI Scanner
If you have a new project that needs discussion, or you haven’t yet used the system, we suggest first contacting either the Senior Radiographer or Professor Caroline Rae in the first instance.
This process will generally only take one to two weeks as projects are reviewed as soon as practicable after receipt.
Scanning cannot proceed without appropriate research ethics clearances. See our ethics page for information.
Once you have SMP clearance and have agreed to our terms & conditions you may book scanning time by calling MRI reception on 93991200. If your scanning involves using the scanner under the National Imaging Facility, you may also apply to the NIF for subsidized access.
All users of the facility are required to attend the MRI Safety Induction Course before using the MRI scanner. Users must attend the course to enter the MRI control room.
Request for MRI Programming
In addition to the MRI Scanner, NeuRA Imaging now offers a programming service for researchers who have SMP approval. For a fee, fMRI projects needing stimulation Presentation programs can be structured and programmed subject to availability of the programmer. See Request for MRI programming form for more information.
One of NeuRA’s most esteemed researchers and the most cited neuroscientist in the world, Scientia Professor George Paxinos AO, is taking his world-renowned brain atlases into a new dimension. Professor Paxinos is known for his work in defining the brain of not only humans but rodents, primates and even the chicken. These exhaustive definitions are collected together in an atlas […]
