Participate in a Study

Interested in signing up for our functional MRI studies?

The MRI scanner creates a strong magnetic field around your body to measure and localize changes in blood flow in your brain. Before you participate in a study using MRI, we must know if you have any metal in your body. Metal may interfere with MR imaging and could be hazardous to you. There are additional restrictions for participation in an MRI study such as claustrophobia, history of neurological or psychiatric disorders, etc.
