Mock Scanner

With some modifications to our old GE scanner, we completed assembly of the shell in Room B19, Stemmler Hall Basement. Due to construction, this resource has been decommissioned.

As of October 1, 2015, we have a new mock scanner/MRI Simulator purchased from Psychology Software Tools, Inc. It is model # PST-100355 and equipped with MoTrak (motion tracking) and SimFx (sound simulation and presentation) Software, also from Psychology Software Tools, Inc.

This new mock scanner was installed in Room C512 of the SOM Richards Bldg. but has recently moved. The current location of the CfN mock scanner is Room 304, Levin Building. The key for this room is located in a lock box outside of Room 301, Please contact Margaret Ryan for the code to the lock box. Kindly return the key to this location when finished.

The mock scanner creates a realistic fMRI environment so that subjects may be desensitized and focus more easily on the tasks they are to perform.

This resource can be reserved by individual protocols or labs by calling 215-573-8486 or contact Margaret Ryan ( for calendar access.
