Neuroimaging Laboratory (Laboratório de Neuroimagem)
The Neuroimaging Laboratory (LNI) is located at the University of Campinas (UNICAMP) and aims to create conditions for research projects for studies in several areas of neuroscience, including prospective studies of various forms of epilepsy, as well as other Central Nervous System diseases. Opened in 1998, this laboratory offers conditions to evaluate and quantify structural and metabolic alterations of the central nervous system, using various neuroimaging modalities by Magnetic Resonance (MRI) and Computed Tomography (CT). The structure of LNI relies on high-performance computers for highly complex graphics support and imaging processing, enabling the reconstruction of three-dimensional images, functional image analysis, diffusion tensor, co-registration of various imaging modalities, and the development of new workflow software for the best Magnetic Resonance Imaging and other neuroimaging modalities. The LNI is the main hub of the BRAINN (The Brazilian Institute of Neuroscience and Neurotechnology)
UF²C is an open source software developed at the Neuroimaging Laboratory at Unicamp that aims to simplify and organize functional connectivity studies in neuroimaging through a clean and validated methodology, without sacrificing quality.
The Brazilian Institute of Neuroscience and Neurotechnology (BRAINN) is a FAPESP-funded institute that investigates the molecular mechanisms underlying epilepsy and stroke, as well as lesions associated with these diseases. Our studies integrate genetics, neurobiology, pharmacology, neuroimaging, computer science, robotics, physics and engineering, all in a quest to better understand the human brain.
