Brain Imaging and Stimulation Platform (BIS)

The BIS is a platform for brain and cognition researchers, providing the equipment and expertise for conducting high-quality basic and clinical research.

The BSI team supports researchers on all steps of their scientific projects, from study design and set-up, to data acquisition, preprocessing and statistical analyses.


What we do

We provide access, support and training for the following neuroimaging and non-invasive brain stimulation methods:

  • Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS)
  • Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS)
  • Electrical Neuroimaging (EEG)
  • Eye-tracking / head-tracking
  • Functional and Structural magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
  • Psychophysics

Who can access the facility?

The BIS Platform is open to members of the University of Fribourg as well as external users.

How to use the facility?

Researchers interested in accessing to the platform can send us an email in which they briefly explain their experiments. We will then assess whether and how we can best help you (need for technical support, equipement availability, safety issues, etc).

The fees represent the direct costs of the equipment and staff. The exact price will be determined based on your demand and in accordance with the specific needs of the project. 


Note: The BSI equipment is dedicated exclusively to scientific research and cannot be utilized for clinical diagnosis or treatment.
