Our Facility  

The USD Human Functional Imaging Core is an interdisciplinary unit organized by the Center for Brain and Behavior Research (CBBRe). We are dedicated to supporting behavioral and brain research on the structures and functions that underlie cognitive, motor and affective processes. We maintain an environment that will enhance the excellence of research at USD by providing a well-equipped physical facility and appropriate staff support services for investigators conducting human subjects research.

The microscopes in the Imaging Core may be used independently by researchers. For imaging inquiries, contact Scott.Pattison@usd.edu. 

Access to the microscopes are on a first-come, first-served basis and must be reserved through the Booked electronic scheduling platform.

All USD and USD-affiliated researchers may use the facility at no charge. External rates may apply for outside entities. Data and image storage is the responsibility of the researcher.
