Welcome

This blog page is dedicated to the efforts of the researchers and clinicians working in collaboration with our research centre, CUBIC – The Cape Universities Brain Imaging Centre. We are located in Tygerberg medical campus, Cape Town, South Africa. In the following pages updated by our research staff, we will endeavor to explore the world of brain imaging.

CUBIC was founded in 2007 by a collaborative effort by Siemens, the University of Stellenbosch and the University of Cape Town. Housed around a Siemens 3T Allegra scanner, the only one of its kind in Africa, we are dedicated to the many facets of brain research. This includes fMRI, DTI, VBM and NIRS. We also have a close partnership with the Centre for High Performance Computing, exploring the boundaries of medical bio-informatics.

We chose WordPress for its speed of posting and using it allows for a relatively decent blogpage which can be maintained with the least amount of effort. Whenever you see a link, hover you cursor over it. A short description / image should be launched to give you a better idea where it leads. The blog is centered around the “cube manual“, which is an attempt to order the ad hoc blogs that we post, into a logical format, so that it can be used in step wise instruction. Links are liberally made to relevant pages across the internet, to encourage you to surf as widely as possible and use this blog as a springboard.

Please feel free to browse our site! All comments are encouraged! Good Luck in your imaging analysis!
