Magnetic Resonance Lab

The Magnetic Resonance Lab is located within the Neuroimaging Brain Core Facility of the Malopolska Centre of Biotechnology at the Jagiellonian University.



Siemens Skyra 3T Scanner

  • 20-channel head/neck coil with 20 integrated pre-amplifiers.
  • 32-channel head coil with 32 integrated preamplifiers.
  • 64-channel head/neck coil with 64 integrated pre-amplifiers.
  • Spine matrix coil for high resolution imaging of the whole spine.
  • Set of flex coils in different sizes allowing examination of different body parts.

Stimulation and response recording systems:

  • Monitor is 32" HD LCD display fully compatible with MR scanner. (NordicNeuroLab)
  • Visual stimulation googles for fMRI with the EyeTracking camera (NordicNeuroLab)
  • Siemens headphones providing noise levels reduction and better sound reception.
  • Audio system - headphones designed specifically for fMRI (NordicNeuroLab)
  • Audio system - EarPlug specially designed for experiments conducted with the restrictive space requirements inside the head coils. (NordicNeuroLab)
