Learn more about the unique capabilities of magnetoencephalography (MEG) and how it can be used in basic and clinical research and clinical decision-making.

Organised by Swinburne University of Technology, which boasts the only 306 sensor magnetometer in the southern hemisphere, this two-day symposium and workshop features talks from MEG research leaders, including:

  • Professor Mark Woolrich – Source reconstruction and spontaneous transient brain networks
  • Professor Krish Singh – Oscillatory biomarkers in health and disease: Their use, relationship to MR measures, and neurophysciologically informed modelling
  • Dr Vladimir Litvak – Oscillatory cortio-subcortical networks: An insight from combined MEG, intracranial recordings and deep brain stimulation
  • Professor Blake Johnson – Temporal processing in the human auditory cortex
  • Dr Suresh Muthikumaraswamy – Pharmaco-MEG: Past, present and future

MEG data analysis Workshop

This hands-on workshop will guide users from MEG data pre-processing through to beamformer source analysis of an existing Elektra TRIUX data set, using the FieldTrip MATLAB based software toolbox. Familiarity with MATLAB will be assumed. There will also be a brief overview of the other major MEG analysis open source software packages NutMEG, MNE, Brainstorm and SPM.

This workshop will be conducted by Dr Tjeerd Boonstra.
