Core-Unit Brainimaging 

Group Leader: Prof. Dr. Andreas Jansen

The Core-Unit Brainimaging is a core resource that offers technical expertise and administrative assistance to permit scientists of the Philipps University Marburg and their collaborators to initiate and conduct human brain imaging research. This will be accomplished by offering access to state of the art imaging technology, infrastructure, and personnel assistance. We use various magnetic resonance imaging methods, including functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), structural magnetic resonance imaging (sMRI), diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) and magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS). Our highly experienced team is composed of physicists, computer scientists, radiographers and systemadministrators. The laboratory is equipped with a 3 T scanner (Siemens Tim Trio), two EEG systems (one being MR compatible) and various MR compatible eye-tracker systems. The core-unit is closely interlinked with various research groups from the departments of Psychiatry, Neurology, Neurosurgery, Child and adolescent psychiatry, Psychology and Neurophysics.
