Aims and objectives

It´s all about the brain! The Danish Research Centre for Magnetic Resonance (DRCMR) is one of the leading research centres in Europe within the field of biomedical MRI. The DRCMR has a methodological line of research which aims at advancing biomedical use of MRI and a more applied line of research which is geared to conduct ground-breaking basic and clinical neuroscience. A highly profiled international research team translates the latest progress in MRI to unravel how brain disorders affect brain structure, function, and metabolism. This knowledge promotes early diagnosis and monitoring, but also yields novel insight into disease mechanisms and how the brain is able to cope with damage. Another important aspect is to identify "beneficial" brain properties than determine mental health and well-being.


Focus areas

DRCMR houses a multidisciplinary and multinational research team with expertise within five main research areas:

  • Clinical Brain Imaging
  • Life span Brain Imaging
  • MR Physics & Analysis
  • Cognitive & Computational Neuroscience
  • Non-invasive Trans cranial Brain Stimulation


Disciplines, methods and tools

The centre’s research activities range from methods development and pre-clinical research to applied research in human volunteers that leads to a better biological understanding of the human brain and its disorders.

  • Advanced brain imaging of neurological and psychiatric disorders
  • 7T MR research in humans (National 7T-MR project) 
  • Micro structural imaging of brain plasticity
  • Preclinical MRI in rodents
  • Neuroimaging-informed population neuroscience
  • Motor control
  • Cognitive neuroscience
  • Reward and Homeostasis
  • Computational Neuroscience
  • Interventional neurophysiology
  • Neurophysics
  • Acquisition technology (hardware, software, and analysis methods)
  • Multimodal integration
  • Trans cranial stimulation techniques (TMS, TACS, TDCS)
  • Electroencephalography
  • Behavioural assessments
