At Saclay, researchers will be able to study the brain in very high resolution

Magalie Quet - 28/06/2017

At the end of May, after six years in construction and over 14 days being transported, the largest human MRI scanner[i] - the Iseult project - arrived at the Neurospin research centre in Saclay.
