Resource:McConnell Brain Imaging Center

Name: Resource:McConnell Brain Imaging Center
Description: A research center dedicated to understanding and treatment of neurological diseases by creating and using imaging methods to study the human nervous system.

BIC is one of the largest scientific communities in North America dedicated solely to research imaging of the human brain. Today, the BIC consists of a core group of 16 faculty members, conducting independent research with high technology brain scanners and sophisticated computational analysis. It also houses approximately 70 graduate students and postdoctoral researchers and over 25 technicians and administrative staff. The BIC also hosts approximately 30 affiliate faculty members from McGill and beyond who conduct their imaging research studies in collaboration with the core group. The center emphasizes quantitative multi-modal 3-D investigation of brain structure and function. Brain structure is imaged using anatomical Magnetic Resonance Imaging (aMRI) while brain physiology is imaged using Positron Emission Tomography (PET), Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy (MRS), functional MRI (fMRI) and magnetoencephalography (MEG). The BIC maintains strong linkages with the clinical, clinical research and basic research communities within the Montreal Neurological Institute (MNI), McGill University and has collaborations across Quebec, Canada, USA and internationally.

The McConnell Brain Imaging Center is a stimulating multidisciplinary environment whose scientists are world leaders in neuroimaging research domains that span the spectrum from basic imaging methodology to clinical investigations in most all major neurological and psychiatric disorders. In this dynamic multi-disciplinary research environment, BIC's faculty train graduate students and postdoctoral fellows from a range of McGill University departments including neuroscience, biomedical engineering, neurology, psychology, medical physics, computer science, chemistry and neurosurgery. Being housed within the Neuro, consisting of the Montreal Neurological Institute and Hospital, and having strong partnerships with the Douglas Hospital and Jewish General Hospital, via the Montreal Consortium for Brain Imaging Research, we also benefit from deep interactions with our clinical colleagues that enable the investigation of most all major neurological and psychiatric diseases.

Services:
- Software: The current and previous members of the BIC have written and released a large number of software packages, some of these releases date back to the late 1980's. The most recognized of these is the MINC file format, toolbox and associated tools. The current MINC2 library and tools are maintained by a group of developers in various image research labs around the world.
- Atlas: There are various atlases that are available from the BIC in the MINC format.

- BrainWeb: Stimulated Brain Database. he SBD contains a set of realistic MRI data volumes produced by an MRI simulator. These data can be used by the neuroimaging community to evaluate the performance of various image analysis methods in a setting where the truth is known. Currently, the SBD contains simulated brain MRI data based on two anatomical models: normal and multiple sclerosis (MS). For both of these, full 3-dimensional data volumes have been simulated using three sequences (T1-, T2-, and proton-density- (PD-) weighted) and a variety of slice thicknesses, noise levels, and levels of intensity non-uniformity. These data are available for viewing in three orthogonal views (transversal, sagittal, and coronal), and for downloading. Further details about the creation of the SBD are available.
