How to Prepare for your MRI Simulator Experiment

The MRI Simulator is used to simulate the noises and environment of our MRI scanners. However, there is no magnetic field in the MRI simulator, and no brain images are collected by the simulator. During the experiment, you will be asked to lay down on a mechanical bed before being moved into the 60cm cylindrical bore of the simulator. As noise in the bore can be loud, earplugs will be provided beforehand. 

Please go over the following questions before your experiment:

Are you at all claustrophobic?

Are you also planning to participate in an MRI experimenter?

Do you have any issues with loud environments?

Our MRI simulator is located in room C23, on the bottom floor of the Princeton Neuroscience Institute building. The map below has been provided for your convenience.
