The SIU Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Initiative focuses on an effort to bring high-resolution MRI imaging to the Carbondale campus. MRI imaging is a critical tool for studying the human brain and brain-related diseases, such as psychiatric and neurologic disorders. World-class experts will lead training in MRI imaging techniques and brain mapping of cognitive, emotional and sensory functions. By contributing to the MRI initiative, you will help unleash the ingenuity of local experts to advance human neuroscience and help develop new treatments for brain disorders. You will also boost the interdisciplinary capabilities of SIU’s psychology, neuroscience, and radiological sciences training programs.
