MEG

Magnetoencephalography (MEG) is a non-invasive measurement for the detection of tiny magnetic field components, which originate from the neural processes taking place in the living human brain. Due to the excellent time resolution (within millisecond range) of MEG, the method is ideal for the investigation of fast neuromagnetic brain responses.
The primary interest of the Magnetoencephalography (MEG) Methodology group is the development and implementation of novel soft- and hardware components in the field of MEG research. A major focus is to establish real time data acquisition and signal processing in order to acquire new insights into ongoing electrophysiological brain processes during running MEG measurements. This, however, is a big challenge, since standard MEG data analysis, including noise and artefact rejection, source localisation and connectivity analysis, is computationally demanding and usually takes in the region of several days for each single experiment. In combination with neuro-feedback techniques and the application of brain computer interfaces (BCI), real time data analysis will offer great potential in neuroscience and therapy in neurology.
Another field of attention is dedicated to the development of state-of-the-art analysis tools, such as multivariate connectivity analysis in combination with blind source separation and novel source localisation routines.
