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.


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 60Hz and 120Hz eye tracking systems along with stimulus display and control computers 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 head-dedicated Siemens Allegra MRI scanner, with phased-array, head, and surface coils, capable of anatomic and functional MRI as well as proton NMR spectroscopy (MRS) and the second is a 3 Tesla Siemens Skyra MRI scanner, a whole body wide-bore clinical standard MRI scanner, equipped with current state-of-the-art transmit/receive system and a variety of RF coils, capable of anatomic and functional MRI and MRS.

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.


Confocal and Electron Microscopy Facility: We provide laser scanning confocal microscopy, transmission electron microscopy, and sample preparation for scanning electron microscopy.
