Core Facilities

Administrative Core (MSS 411)

Michael Webster (Director)

This core provides the administrative oversight for the research projects and facilities for the center. It also hosts a seminar series to bring leading neuroscientists to campus. For information please contact the Administrative Assistant Leann Kumataka ( (775) 784-4780

Neuroimaging Resources Core (MSS 412)

Lars Strother  (Director)

This facility is designed to support training, use, and analysis of a variety of structural and functional neural imaging techniques. The core is located at MSS 412, which houses a set of workstations and software for neuroimaging analyses, and in FA 311H, which houses computers and software for cellular imaging and microscopy. The core will also manage neuroimaging systems in the center's Neuroimaging Laboratory, located in MSS 413. The core provides access to fMRI in humans and small animal MRI by partnering with scanning facilities at the University of California, Davis.

The neuroimaging technologies supported by the core include:

  • Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) (UC Davis)
  • Small Bore MRI (UC Davis)
  • High Density Electroencephalogram (EEG) (Neuroimaging Laboratory)
  • Functional Near-Infrared Spectroscopy (fNIRS) (Neuroimaging Laboratory)
  • Confocal Microscopy (located in the Fleischmann Agriculture building)

The core will host a variety of workshop and training opportunities as well as a seminar series on neuroimaging techniques. For information please contact the director Lars Strother (

Special Populations Database Core (MSS 413)

Wei Yang (Director)

This facility is designed to provide investigators access to research participants with well characterized cognitive and neurological status. The database will house secure medical records and screening results for patients with targeted neural deficits and control participants. Recruitment and access to the participants will be conducted by the core staff, who will also provide investigators guidance on protocol development.

The participant populations will initially include individuals with mild traumatic brain injury and healthy aging adults. The pool will be expanded to accommodate the interest and needs of investigators. For information please contact the database coordinator Tia Rudd (
