A consensus protocol for functional connectivity analysis: Dr. Marcelo Febo and AMRIS staff collaborated with a consortium of facilities to develop best practices for collecting high quality preclinical fMRI data. The lead author, Dr. Joanes Grandjean, is an Assistant Professor at the Donders Institute which is part of Radboud University in the Netherlands. He is the primary driver of these international standardization efforts for fMRI in rodents. These protocols are available on our 11 T system and will be available on our 7 T system in the coming weeks.

Grant Acknowledgement

ALL PUBLICATIONS that include data obtained through MagLab (AMRIS) instrumentation, or involvement of MagLab-funded personnel at the AMRIS Facility, should acknowledge the corresponding NSF, NIH, and State of Florida grants that apply to instrumentation and usage time, in addition to the user’s project-specific funding sources.

Any users who publish data acquired on the Bruker 7T need to acknowledge the funding source that made this state-of-the-art scanner possible. Publications, presentations, or other activities or products should include the following acknowledgements:

  • “This work was supported in part by an NIH award, S10 OD030293, for MRI/S instrumentation.”
