Elekta Neuromag Vector View 306 Channel Meg
This 306 channel MEG system is comprised of 204 planar gradiometers and 102 magnetometers and is capable of collecting up to 128 channels of simultaneous EEG data at up to 5 kHz sampling frequency. The planar gradiometers provide sensitivity to sources close to the sensor array whereas the magnetometers provide sensitivity to distant sources, including sources originating from the small head of a child. This provides additional advantages over previous gradiometer-only systems. This system has 24 bit A/D conversion providing the largest dynamic range of currently-available MEG systems.
Magnetoencephalography (MEG) is a technique that allows investigators to track brain activity in real time. MEG provides complimentary information relative to techniques such as fMRI through directly measuring neuronal activity with fine temporal resolution on the order of milliseconds. The MEG device housed at MRN allows investigators to study a wide range of clinical populations allowing for data collection both in sitting and supine positions. Recent advances in analysis approaches allow investigators to track and correct for movement during the MEG scan making studies with pediatric and other populations now possible. The MRN MEG Core maintains a diverse selection of stimulus equipment and participant monitoring devices providing behavioral and physiological monitoring synchronized with the MEG data. These capabilities provide for a unique environment within which to study the links between brain and behavior.
