Awake fMRI / phMRI
Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) provides a unique window into the brain, enabling scientists to study and follow changes in brain activity in models of disease including Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and others as well as in response to hormones, ageing, environment, drugs of abuse and other stimuli.
Pharmacological MRI (phMRI) enable scientists to follow changes in the brain activity in response to new and approved therapeutics.
At other laboratories, anesthetics are widely employed to minimize motion in MRI. But these anesthetics are known to have significant effects on the central nervous, cardiovascular and respiratory systems.
