Publications with ToNI Data

The following is a list of neuroscience publications in peer-reviewed scientific journals based on MRI data collected at the ToNI.

Note for Researchers

  • We are currently creating an inventory of all the studies acquired at the ToNI since 2017, so the following list is not complete and we are happy if you let us know about missing entries.
  • If you are preparing a manuscript using data recorded at the ToNI, please refer to our facility in the methods section, if possible, as follows:

Brain imaging data were recorded on a 3 Tesla Siemens Prisma MRI scanner at the Toronto Neuroimaging Facility (ToNI) at the University of Toronto.

  • Additionally, you may also add the following to your Acknowledgements section:
