CIRMMT development featured on the cover of IEEE Sensors Journal, November 2015

The MRI-Compatible Cello, a CIRMMT development, is featured on the cover of the November 2015 issue of IEEE Sensors Journal (volume 15, number 11).

The MRI-Compatible Cello is a CIRMMT/BRAMS project developed by former PhD student Avrum Hollinger and his supervisor, former CIRMMT Director Marcelo M. Wanderley in collaboration with Robert Zatorre (CIRMMT member and BRAMS co-Director, McGill MNI), Virginia Penhune (CIRMMT Collaborator, Concordia University) and CIRMMT student member Melanie Segado.

"The Design, Implementation, and Testing of a Sensitized MRI-Compatible Cello," was published in this month's issue of IEEE Sensors Journal. The MRI-Compatible Cello was also featured on the front cover of the same issue. A preliminary version of this paper received the best student paper award at the 2013 IEEE Sensors conference. 

The project was also featured in Wired and Canal Savoir. You can also learn more by visiting McGill University's YouTube channel and watching Playing musical instruments in the MRI - the brain on music

The development of MRI-Compatible musical instruments was funded by the Canadian Foundation for Innovation.
