The Wellcome Centre for Integrative Neuroimaging (WIN) is a multi-disciplinary neuroimaging research facility which encompasses the Oxford Centre for Functional MRI of the Brain (FMRIB, Nuffield Department of Clinical Neurosciences), Oxford Centre for Human Brain Activity (OHBA, Department of Psychiatry) and imaging facilities within the Department of Experimental Psychology.
It focuses on the use of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) for neuroscience research, along with related technologies such as Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation, transcranial Direct Current Stimulation, MEG and EEG.
Prof Heidi Johansen-Berg is the Director of WIN. Heidi’s research focuses on how the brain changes with learning, experience, and damage. Heidi holds a Wellcome Principal Research Fellowship.
The Centre has two Associate Directors. Prof Karla Miller is an MR Physicist who is developing novel methods for acquiring, reconstructing and analysing MRI scans of the brain. Prof Tim Behrens is a Computational Neuroscientist. An engineer by training, Tim employs mathematical models to explain how the computations in neural circuits give rise to behaviour. Heidi, Tim and Karla are responsible for realising the overall scientific vision of WIN, along with the other investigators on the Management Board.
As Director of Operations, Associate Professor Stuart Clare leads the WIN Operations Team, that delivers radiography, physics, experimental, IT and admin support within the Centre. A key aim of the Centre is to provide a link between the pre-clinical, basic and clinical neuroimaging that is carried out across the Centre’s three sites. The Centre Operations Team with its representatives from core staff at all sites, contribute to this by helping to share resources and expertise.
