The CBIC is operated by Caltech's Division of the Humanities and Social Sciences (HSS). Researchers from HSS, the Division of Biology and Biological Engineering (BBE), the Division of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering (CCE), and others use the CBIC's state-of-the-art MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) scanners to conduct research studies of the brain and its mechanisms. The CBIC facility houses four High-Field MR systems & a variety of project support facilities. Cognitive Brainmapping research projects are conducted, using a Siemens 3.0 Tesla MRI scanner, in a dedicated human subjects fMRI laboratory.
