Project Details


Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) made it possible to investigate the function and structure of the living human brain. Functional MRI (fMRI) can measure the activity of the brain during specific tasks with high spatial (millimetres) and high temporal (tenths of seconds) resolution. Diffusion Tensor Imaging (DTI) allows the assessment of the orientation of connections (fibre-tracts) between different regions within the brain. Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy (MRS) allows direct insights into the metabolism and the composition of brain areas. The development of a new generation of research 3T MR scanners
