The Spinoza Centre for Neuroimaging is a joint initiative of the Amsterdam academic institute to create an advanced MRI infrastructure. We welcome the use of the Centre’s facilities, in particular 3 and 7 Tesla MRI. The mission of the Spinoza Centre is to add value to the neuroscience community engaged in the study of the living human brain by offering easy access to state-of-the-art MRI equipment. The Centre offers support and expertise in experimental design, data acquisition and analysis in the fields of basic and clinical neuroscience.
- Biomedical & health
- Ultra-high field MRI imaging
Expertise and Track Record
The research of the Spinoza Centre on healthy and diseased brains is focused on:
- Cognition (research into the brain’s information processing)
- Emotion (research into the the neural basis of emotion)
- Clinical neuroscience (research into clinical disorders)
- Methods and statistics (development of data acquisition and analyses techniques)
