BabyMEG: A whole-head pediatric magnetoencephalography system for human brain development research

ABSTRACT We developed a 375-channel, whole-head magnetoencephalography (MEG) system (“BabyMEG”) for studying the electrophysiological development of human brain during the first years of life. The helmet accommodates heads up to 95% of 36-month old boys in the USA. The unique two-layer sensor array consists of: (1) 270 magnetometers (10 mm diameter, ∼15 mm coil-to-coil spacing) in ...

SQUID Sensors: “The Heart” of Biomagnetism

Superconducting magnets (or SQUID sensors as they are known in the magnetic sensors industry) have been considered "the heart" of the biomedical arena, especially in equipment use in Magneto-encephalography (MEG) in the innovative Fetal magneto-cardiography (FMCG) and FMEG. This has been apparent since these technologies were upgraded and started to have a significant recognition in ...

“Brain Scan Offers First Biological Test in Diagnosis of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder”


  Researchers use a brain-scanning technique to find differences in the neural connections of PTSD patients that could help researchers understand and treat the disorder By Carina Storrs | January 22, 2010 An event such as sexual assault or a battlefield injury is physically agonizing at the time, but it also can eventually sentence a person to a host of mental ...

Epilepsy Patients Help Decode The Brain’s Hidden Signals

Patients with severe epilepsy are giving scientists the chance to see the human brain in action, a view they could never get with an MRI or other high-tech tools. By applying small jolts of electricity to the brain, they're able to wipe out a person's ability to recognize faces, to spark hallucinations, or even induce a will to ...

How playing music can keep your brain healthy

If you are a current or former musician, your brain might be in luck. A new study published in the Journal of Neuroscience shows playing an instrument at a young age might make you healthier later in life. “What we see in an older adult who has made music is a biologically younger brain,” said Dr. Nina Kraus, professor ...

Artemis 123®: Development of a whole-head infant MEG system

Whole-head magnetoencephalography (MEG) systems to date have been optimized for adults. The Artemis 123® allows rapid and efficient recording of high-quality whole-head MEG in infants three years and younger. - See more at:

More Teachers Using Amplifiers In Class

You can’t escape Suzy Glover’s voice, whether you’re sitting directly in front of her or at the back of her second-grade classroom. That’s because of a small device, commonly called a sound amplifier, that projects her voice to all corners of the room at Martell Elementary School in Troy. 2Traditionally an aid for hearing-impaired students, amplifiers are ...
