Stimulus device assembly sequence for an fMRI session. (A) depicts the lip retractor in place and the stimulator attached to the superior aspect of the RF head coil. (B) demonstrates the two-person technique in seating the stimulator in place with (C) depicting the need for repositioning components of the device when in place to achieve maximal comfort. (D) shows the stimulator device in position with the connector attached and supported. (E) depicts operation of the device with the subject's head positioned at the isocenter of the MRI scanner. Note: images were not taken from an optimal position due to safety precautions observed when in the proximity of the static magnetic field and subject gave consent to publish images.
