Welcome to the Robert and Beverly Lewis Center for NeuroImaging at the University of Oregon. Here you will find information about the Center and resources for researchers and the general public.
Our center is a core research facility supporting a wide range of interdisciplinary, multifaceted research in neuroscience and biological imaging. Please see the Directors statement for more detail about our mission and approach.
The Center operates a Siemens 3T Skyra MRI system, a mock scanner, and a computational grid for advanced analysis. Please see the Resources page for further details about our services, resources, and capabilities.
A Statement from the Director:
Welcome to our site.
As a core research facility at the UO, our mission is to provide resources to conduct MRI research to members of the UO and the surrounding community. We have an array of services and resources to help facilitate your research and we are very eager to support new research endeavors.
Our site will hopefully provide a wealth of information about our services as well as serve as a dynamic resource for information on MRI research through our wiki-style entries on acquisition, analysis and peripherals. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you are interested in learning more.
Fred and the LCNI team.
Research conducted using Center facilities is quite varied. Follow the links below for information about current projects and papers resulting from this research.
