 The 7.0 T animal scanner was delivered in March 2006 and occupies a newly renovated 1500 sq-ft suite. It is equipped with a 33 cm high-power gradient system at 250 mT/m strength necessary for high-resolution imaging. Similar to our human scanners, it comes with parallel imaging capability through four channels (upgradeable to eight). Also, high-order shimming controls are used to ensure a homogeneous magnetic field. In addition, it has two broadband transmission channels and proton de-coupler for multi-nuclei MR spectroscopy scans. The scanner is controlled by a Linux workstation,​ which is connected via a high-speed network interface. The 7.0 T animal scanner was delivered in March 2006 and occupies a newly renovated 1500 sq-ft suite.

 +==== Whisperrooms ====
 +The BIAC has installed two Whisperroom sound-attenuating chambers (http://​www.whisperroom.com/​). These rooms are equipped with networked computers and 8 channel button boxes, identical to those used at the scanner. They are ideal for testing experimental paradigms and conducting behavioral studies. ​ As they are located in close proximity to our MRI scanners, they are also often used for pre-scan training and post-scan testing. ​
