Magnetoencephalography at the CCNi

A state-of-the-art MAGNES 3600 WH MEG system from 4D-Neuroimaging has been installed at the CCNi. The MAGNES 3600 WH features 248 magnetometer sensors that provide full cortical coverage. The system has been delivered with a full range of stimulation and measurement devices (besides standard auditory, visual and electrical stimulation) including natural tactile stimulation with braille cells, laser stimulation, eye tracking.

Introduction to Magnetoencephalography (MEG)

Magnetoencephalography (MEG) is a completely noninvasive imaging technique used to measure the tiny magnetic fields produced by electrical activity in the human brain. Measurements are performed with extremely sensitive sensors called SQUIDS. A state-of-the-art MEG system has about 100-300 SQUIDS that are contained in a helmet-shaped dewar filled with liquid helium.
