NeuroSpin is a research center built to develop and validate neuroimaging using ultra-high Magnetic Field headed by Dr. Denis Le Bihan, a Member of the French Academy of Sciences. It was opened on January 1st 2007. The center is recognized as a large infrastructure, for biomedical imaging, such as the CERN in Genève. It is a shared imaging facility with unique imaging devices,. An 11.7T MRI scanner for human will be installed in 2016, one of the first in the world.
The Institute of Biomedicale Imaging take part in three projects: CATI, INUMAC project and Human Brain Project.
Toutes les faits marquants de l'I²BM
UMR 5296 - GIN (Bordeaux)
The Neurofunctional Imaging Group (GIN) is a unit integred in the I²BM. Driven by three scientists, namely Nathalie Tzourio-Mazoyer, Bernard Mazoyer, its Director, and Marc Joliot, this unit became a pioneer in France in the development of Positron Emission Tomography (PET) and its use for investigating the neural bases of cognition.
The GIN is a multidisciplinary research unit gathering scientists with initial training in various domains, namely mathematics and instrumentation for medical imaging (B Mazoyer), nuclear medicine and neurosciences (N Tzourio-Mazoyer), signal processing (F Crivello, M Joliot), psychiatry (E Mellet) and cognitive neurosciences (G Jobard, L Petit, L Zago).
The project is based on a collective expertise acquired over 20 years of work in the domain of cognitive neuroimaging. The GIN possesses know-how for all functional imaging techniques (PET, MRI, EEG, MEG), from the design of experiments to data analysis.
The GIN is a core member of the TRAIL Laboratory of Excellence (LabEx), and is an associated team of the BRAIN LabEx as well. The GIN is also and involved in the i-SHARE cohort of excellence.
