Oxford Centre for Human Brain Activity (OBHA) has recently undergone a £4.5 million upgrade (April 2016) and is part of the Wellcome Centre for Integrative Neuroimaging. This research facility located on the Warneford site offers:
- Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
- Magnetoencephalography (MEG)
- Electroencephalography (EEG)
- Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS)
These methods are highly complementary. MRI provides structural and blood-flow data, MEG and EEG allow researchers to track activity by the millisecond. TMS can be used to stimulate brain function in specific regions. This allows researchers to test the importance of a brain area for a behaviour.
