The aim of NeuroSpin is to push as far as possible the current limits of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and spectroscopy to study the central nervous system, from mice to humans. Benefiting from French Atomic Energy Commission (CEA) know-how in the conception of magnets (Irfu) and NMR technology, this technical platform is equipped with outstanding MRI/MRS equipment and related tools and an advanced computer platform. NeuroSpin houses a 3T and a 7T wide bore MR scanners for clinical studies, as well as a 11.7T wide bore system and soon a 17T small bore system for preclinical studies (early 2010). The design of a home-made whole-body magnet operating at 11.7T is underway (scheduled for end of 2012).

NeuroSpin will house a fully equipped clinical suit with beds and test/examination rooms (neuropsychology, electrophysiology, pharmacology) to accommodate protocols involving normal volunteers and patients. The center will also be equipped with an animal care facility, as well as several laboratories (electronics, chemistry, biology, histology, molecular imaging...). NeuroSpin architecture will be designed by Claude Vasconi.
