The University has established Life Science Imaging Centre (LSIC) as a major research infrastructure or central research facility to promote individual and collaborative research on transdisciplinary neuroscience studies.

LSIC has procured a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) facility (model: MAGNETOM Prisma) , which is equipped with:

  • high gradient performance (80 mT/m @ 200 T/m/s simultaneously, on all three axes) with an ultra-high-performance cooling system and force-compensated design for reduced vibrations;
  • fully dynamic parallel transmit with TimTX TrueShape
  • Tim 4G RF system with 48, 64, or 128 independent channels for faster imaging and higher SNR
  • new UltraFlex 18 coils and Tim 4G coil technology

Apart from the MRI scanner, LSIC is further equipped with electroencephalogram (EEG) , Functional near infra-red spectroscopy (fNIRS) and Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) system.
