    • Mock scanner:
      • The "mock scanner" allows researchers to do "practice runs" in order to acclimatize subjects to the sights and sounds of an MRI.It is especially useful for "training" children,the elderly,and persons with psychiatric disorders to perform an fMRI task and to reduce head motion during scanning.
