$13.4 million to build next-gen MRI brain scanner at UC Berkeley

October 6, 2017

UC Berkeley researchers have reimagined fMRI techniques and instruments to boost resolution by a factor of 20. They will use a new $13.43 million BRAIN Initiative grant from the National Institutes of Health to build the NexGen 7T by 2019 to provide the highest resolution images of the brain ever obtained, able to focus on a region the size of a poppy seed.
