The Functional Magnetic Resonance Brain Imaging Program (FMR-BIP) is located within the Clinical Neuroscience Research Unit (CNRU) of the Department of Psychiatry. Its primary goal is to perform functional brain imaging studies collaboratively with the Department of Radiology utilizing the new 3 Tesla Phillips Achieva scanner and the CNRU experimental image capture and analysis system. In addition, the FMR-BIP works collaboratively with other laboratories within the Psychiatry Department to serve mutual research interests. The FMR-BIP collaborates across the Neuroscience Consortium with investigators in the Departments of Neurology, Anatomy, Psychology, as well as GCRC investigators to further develop brain imaging expertise at UVM. This is a collaborative effort between the departments of Psychiatry and Radiology. The functional imaging experimental and analysis expertise reside in CNRU-Psychiatry. Technical personnel necessary to operate the imaging program including MR physicist, fMRI radiologist, and technicians are employed by the Department of Radiology in the College of Medicine.
