Magnetic resonance imaging labs

We have four MRI laboratories with a powerful combination of equipment that makes it one of the top brain imaging facilities in Europe.

Electrodes wires run from a box to a female participant's head as she sits in the MEG scanner. A male researcher attaches the electrodes to the participant's head.

Magnetoencephalography labs

Our magnetoencephalography (MEG) labs offer an optimised environment for clinical and pharmacological studies of the brain’s oscillatory dynamics.

Workshop and 3D printing

The workshop allows our expert staff to design, repair and create specialist equipment to support our brain imaging research.

Data storage

High performance computing

High performance computing allows researchers to find results that would take years of computations on standard computers within hours or days.
