Jointly supported by Georgia State University and the Georgia Institute of Technology, the Center for Advanced Brain Imaging (CABI) is a research facility focused on the study of human brain. Researchers use CABI to conduct studies on topics ranging from autism and learning disabilities to brain-computer interfaces.
CABI is actively seeking volunteers to take part in the following research studies. Click on the study title at right for additional information. Interested participants should contact the study coordinator for additional information.
If you would like to be contacted about future studies you may qualify for, please register here. You will periodically be contacted with information on studies that are taking place at CABI, and may reach out if you are interested in participating. Registering does not obligate you to participate in a study.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) uses a large magnet to take images of the body without radiation, contrasts, or needles. The magnetic fields the MRI uses aren’t known to be harmful.

On the day of your visit, please dress in comfortable clothing. We suggest loose fitting, cotton clothing such as sweatpants and a long sleeve t-shirt. Keep in mind that you should not have any metal on your clothes or body. Please be sure to remove all jewelry before coming to the Center. Do not wear spandex-like, tight fitting clothing or anything that is made of wicking material (e.g. UnderArmour or Lululemon). Clothing with glitter or metal is not allowed (zippers are typically okay). You will be asked to change into scrubs provided by the Center if your clothing is not safe to wear into the scanner.
CABI provides free parking for all participants. Driving and parking directions can be found here. Please arrive approximately 15 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment.
Some of our researchers study children or conditions that affect children like dyslexia or reading disabilities. Young study participants are vital to the success of that research. The video shown here will help children and their parents prepare for a visit to CABI for an MRI.
