The SCAN center now has a Psychology Software Tools Mock Scanner located in our Psychology Department. This mock scanner can be used to simulate the feeling of a real MRI/fMRI scan.
It comes with MoTrack: Head Motion Tracking System Software that can track the movement of the subjects head during the simulated MRI scan. Using this software you can train your subject to remain still therefore cutting down on the amount of useless data you will receive on the day of the real scan.
The mock scanner is also equipped with sound effects the mimic the real sounds the subject will hear in the scanner.
To schedule time on the mock scanner please contact the center.
Currently there is no charge to use the scanner if you are running at study at the center.
