Technologies and materials are extremely important in the study of brain science. Research Resources Center (RRC) is a support system for scientific technologies at Brain Science Institute (BSI). RRC has numerous facilities and equipment available for common use, and maintains and manages these. Trained technical staff in the RRC provide technological services for all labs at BSI. New arrangements for facilities, equipment and technical services are made at the requests of either researchers or RRC. The users of RRC services are primarily BSI members, the RRC being apart of BSI ; however, non-BSI members may use RRC services unless it impacts BSI staff requests.
