Conferences and symposiums On-scalp MEG symposium 2022

03-05-2022 9:00 am Add to iCal

NatMEG is excited to host a symposium on on-scalp MEG. On-scalp MEG uses new sensor technologies that enable measuring closer to the head where higher sensitivity and spatial precsion can be achieved. Recent years saw a lot of exciting developments in the field including first whole-head systems and clinical recordings. At the syposium we will hear from leading experts in the field about the latest developments in hardware, methods and applications.
