centre for human brain activity, oxford

Oxford, England

The Oxford Centre for Human Brain Activity at Warneford Hospital, comprises a new building extension which houses a state-of-the-art MRI scanner plus consultation rooms and offices. The design included a Helium ‘Quench Pipe’ from the scanner, wereby the liquid helium is used for super cooling the scanner magnet and if the cooling system fails the liquid helium is boiled off resulting in a large volume of gas being exhausted.
