WE'RE BENEFITTING SOCIETY EVERY DAY
Our Cutting-Edge Equipment & Technology Make A Difference.
The Latest Brain Mapping Equipment Is Integral To Our Mission
In a field such as Brain Mapping, equipment quality and capability determine the impact and productivity that faculty and researchers will have in studying the human brain. In a technology-driven field such as Brain Mapping, state-of-the art equipment and a broad range of capabilities are essential to: a) conduct the research that has placed the Center in the forefront of the Brain Mapping field; b) attract and retain first-rate faculty and trainees; c) successfully compete for research funding from traditional sources such as the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
Equipment Upgrades Are Essential To Keep Our Competitive Advantage
In technology driven fields, the essential lifespan of equipment such as MRI, PET and TMS is three to four years. New equipment and new upgrades render equipment that is more than four years old essentially obsolete to the research community. While some older equipment still holds value, the expanded ability of newer, enhanced equipment to attract top-rate faculty, trainees and research dollars produces a significant competitive advantage.
Maintaining Our Position As The Leader In Brain Mapping Research
The UCLA Ahmanson-Lovelace Brain Mapping Center is continuously upgrading and augmenting its current equipment inventory to a) increase its competitive faculty and researcher draw, b) expand its funding base from donor sources that only give dollars to organizations with cutting-edge technology, and c) maintain its position as the leader in brain mapping research findings. The Brain Mapping Center was the first institution in the world to amass the most advanced brain imaging equipment in a central location, situated in the midst of UCLA’s Neuroscience hub, School of Medicine and UCLA Medical Center.
