MEG Workshop

Speaker(s): Matti Hämäläinen, MGH; Dimitrios Pantazis, McGovern Institute; David Gow, MGH

ABSTRACT: MEG methodological approaches have grown remarkably during the 50-year history of MEG. A breadth of source estimation tools can localize brain activity even in challenging situations. Pattern analysis of brain activity can perform feats of mind reading by revealing what a person is seeing, perceiving, attending to, or remembering. Functional connectivity approaches can assess the role of large-scale brain networks in cognitive function. The aim of this workshop is to deconstruct these tools and overview challenges and limitations. Another goal is to demonstrate MEG data analysis procedures to a novice researcher.
