Brain Research Imaging Centre, University of Edinburgh

The Brain Research Imaging Centre (BRIC) is a neuroscience research center with a world-wide reputation.
Medical researchers need to know more about how the brain works so that they can continue to improve the treatment of people who become ill, and work towards prevention of diseases affecting the brain. Although MRI techniques are already very well developed for taking pictures of the brain, less is known about how our body chemistry behaves during illness, how blood flows through our brains, and how our brains actually work. This Centre's scanner is dedicated to finding out more about these things. The Centre's staff work closely with numerous investigators in Scotland and beyond, sharing findings, and learning from others, in order to push forward the frontiers of medical imaging.
