MRes Course in Brain Imaging & Cognitive Neuroscience
Welcome to BUIC
The Birmingham University Imaging Centre (BUIC) was opened by Sir Peter Mansfield in March 2006 with the aim of providing scientists and clinicians with excellent access to a research-dedicated 3T Philips Achieva MRI scanner.
BUIC has state-of-the-art stimulus delivery and recording equipment, including eye tracking and limb movement recording in the scanner, transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) and 64 channel simultaneous EEG recording. Research at the Centre is focussed around the use of MR and related techniques to investigate the brain and the heart, with various research groups concentrating on a wide range of applications, including visual cognition, motor control, multimodal data integration, cardiac energetics, cardiac micro-vascular function and pain. As well as work in healthy subjects, researchers scan patients with a number of ailments (stroke, epilepsy, cardiomyopathy, Type 1 diabetes and grown up congenital heart disease (GUCH)) to develop new and improved methods of diagnosis and treatment.
BUIC is a collaboration between three schools of the University of Birmingham: Psychology, the Medical School and Sport and Exercise Science. The Scientific Director of BUIC, and Chair of the Management Committee, is Dr Amanda Wood.
