1x fMRI Lab

The lab has a 3 Tesla MRI scanner (Philips Achieva DS, 32 channel head coil) and offers state-of-the-art scan sequences for anatomical, diffusion, and functional MRI research. MRI research can be combined with additional physiological measurements including skin conductance, eyetracking, and simultaneous EEG, as well as (off-line) neuromodulation techniques such as TMS and tACS. 

In addition, the centre offers an optional service to convert the acquired MRI data to a standardized format and run it through a cutting-edge preprocessing and quality control pipeline. For more information please contact Tinka Beemsterboer ( or Steven Scholte (
