Mobile Lab

The Mobile Lab is a new research venture we are starting at the Raz Lab. The main initiative is to have a mobile brain-imaging van, which can go to individuals in remote locations and geographic regions where such medical and research resources are scant. As it stands, the success of our on-going projects is highly dependent on interested individuals who have the time and resources to visit the laboratory at either the Jewish General Hospital or McGill University. The continued involvement of these individuals is crucial in enabling progress in our research fields. However, there is still a wider range of individuals who would benefit from the services we offer; unfortunately they are hindered by restricted mobility. The Mobile Lab would accommodate patients who cannot otherwise have access to such advanced measurements in their locale. We envisage a vehicle outfitted with state-of-the-art non-invasive brain imaging apparatus, including electric scalp recording of the behaving brain.
