MEG: An Introduction to Methods and Experimental Applications

Fri, February 28, 2014 • 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM • SEA Library, 4.244

Speaker: Paul Ferrari, PhD. Research Scientist, Department of Psychology and Dell Children's Hospital

 

Magnetoencephalography (MEG) is a non-invasive neurophysiology recording technique that has been steadily advancing over the past 20+ years. The properties of the neuromagnetic field affords clinicians and experimenters unique access to direct large-scale measures of cortical activity with high temporal and spatial resolution, the most recent advances coming in the way of estimating volumetric brain dynamics. Here we will introduce methodological foundations of MEG including analysis techniques and source estimation. A survey of results from various sensory and motor experiments will be presented to demonstrate the utility of MEG in cognitive neuroscience.
