Many Departmental faculty participate in the FSU Interdisciplinary Graduate Program in Neuroscience (http://neuro.fsu.edu/). Other resources available include structural and functional MR imaging facilities at the FSU National High Magnetic Field Laboratory (http://magnet.fsu.edu/), exceptional animal imaging facilities and expertise at FSU, and a statewide, collaborative Clinical Research Network (http://med.fsu.edu/research/crn/).
