NYU Center for Brain ImagingVisit Site
The NYU Center for Brain Imaging is a shared facility, dedicated to research and teaching in cognitive neuroscience. The NYU Brain Imaging Center is located on the ground floor of the Meyer building, the same building that houses the Psychology Department and the Center for Neural Science. The NYU Center for Brain Imaging is host to a Siemens Allegra 3T head-only scanner, a 128 channel EEG system using the Geodesic Sensor Net technology and a transcranial magnetic stimulation lab.
NYU High-Performance ComputingVisit Site
NYU supports high performance computing and networking for researchers and scholars, and is home to several high performance clusters and high-speed networks equipped with a wide variety of research software packages.
KIT/NYU MEG Joint Research LabVisit Site
The KIT/NYU MEG Lab, which moved to NYU from MIT in July of 2008, features a 160-channel MEG system used for various neuroscience investigations. The MEG system was provided by Kanazawa Institute of Technology, as part of a collaboration with the Applied Electronics Laboratory at KIT (Tokyo, Japan).

Societies and Organizations
Social & Affective Neuroscience SocietyVisit site
The Social & Affective Neuroscience Society (SANS) is committed to research investigating the neural basis of social and affective processes. The Society was founded in 2008 and now comprises over 400 members. One of the main ways that SANS promotes social and affective neuroscience is by holding an annual meeting each year. The meeting was held in New York in 2009 and will be returning to New York in 2011.
Society for Social NeuroscienceVisit site
The Society for Social Neuroscience is an international, interdisciplinary, scientific society to advance and foster scientific research, training, and applications.
