In this experiment we show the possibility of simultaneously scanning 3 subjects in an open MRI scanner, during a simple fMRI experiment with a motor paradigm. FMRI analysis is performed on all subjects simultaneously and in real-time. Clear activation is shown in all subjects showing the feasibility of scanning multiple subjects and thus creating possibilities for experiments whereby interaction between subjects is measured by fMRI.
