Research

There are a wide variety of ongoing research projects at the York MRI Facility. Many of these projects are led by York Professors, members of the Centre for Vision Research and their students but research is also conducted by external users from other Universities and Industry.  If you are interested in becoming a new user, please contact us here.

You can find a list of publications based on the MRI data acquired at York MRI Facility here: http://mri.info.yorku.ca/publications.
