Computing

Computing Facility
The PNI computing facility provides state-of-the-art equipment in support of PNI research by faculty, staff, students, and collaborators. Resources include a general-purpose compute cluster consisting of 416 processors and a 400TB central file server.

Microscopy

The PNI Microscopy Facility hosts shared instruments that can be used by any researchers at Princeton Neuroscience Institute. Currently, three instruments are available: a confocal and two-photon microscope, a spinning disk and a fluorescent stereoscope.

Human Neuroscience

EEG Laboratory
The Cognitive Electrophysiology Laboratory studies neuronal firing patterns via EEG (electroencephalography), giving it the locally known name of "EEG Lab."
 
Eye Tracking Facility
Our facility offers a 2000Hz monocular/1000Hz binocular eye tracking system along with a stimulus display and control computer for general psychophysics and eye tracking studies.
 
Neuroimaging Facility
We have two research-dedicated scanners in our shared facility. The first is a 3 Tesla Siemens Skyra MRI scanner, a whole body wide-bore MRI scanner. The second is a 3 Tesla Siemens Prisma MRI scanner that uses MR gradient coils capable of high speeds that are currently unmatched in the industry, thereby greatly enhancing both temporal and spatial resolution. Both scanners are equipped with a variety of RF coils, capable of structural, diffusion and functional imaging.
 
TMS Facility
Our TMS facility provides two single pulse TMS stimulators with image-guided neuro-navigation in addition to an eye tracker and a stimulus display and control computer.
 

Viral and Non-Viral Vector Tools

PNI Viral Core Facility
Our main objective is to design and provide investigators with high quality viral and non-viral vector tools that can be used in vitro and in vivo. Service Request Form (University login required).
