Human Connectome Project - Mapping the Human Brain

The Human Connectome Project, or HCP, has brought the combined brainpower of 36 investigators — including six from the University of Minnesota —from 11 different institutions to bear on the challenges of understanding the human brain. Now just past the midpoint, the five-year, $30 million research effort is mapping the vast network of neurons and the trillions of interconnections that compose this elaborate organ.


P30 NINDS Institutional Center Core Grants

These grants are provided to support neuroscience research (P30). You can apply for P30 support from the CMRR for your project.



Multi-Band Accelerated Pulse Sequences

Accelerated multi-band EPI pulse sequences are available for Siemens MRI systems.


SWIFT Pulse Sequences

SWIFT allows for quiet, rapid imaging of short-T2 tissues like teeth and bones. This image compares SWIFT to cone-beam CT. SWIFT sequences are available.


Spectroscopy Tools

Spectroscopy tools and sequences like LASER, PRESS, STEAM, and FAST(EST)MAP are available for Siemens MRI systems.
