Facility for Imaging and Brain Research (FIBRE)

The Facility for Imaging and Brain Research (FIBRE), located on the ground floor of the Social and Behavioral Sciences Gateway, houses a 3T Siemens Prisma scanner, a mock scanner, and data analysis facilities. This research-dedicated MRI scanning facility, operated by Dr. Craig Stark, is designed to suit a wide range of basic and translational research programs by researchers across the UCI campus and beyond.

The Prisma scanner is the outcome of a tremendous effort by both Siemens and the National Institutes of Health to develop an MRI machine that would give researchers unprecedented speed, resolution, and detail needed for such ambitious projects as the Human Connectome Project.
