In this 2-part lecture, Ronald Gordon of Elekta introduces MEG imaging to the MIT community. The first hour provides an overview of MEG, including: historical development, basic MEG physics, noise cancellation, basic source modeling, and experimental and clinical applications. After a break, the second hour concentrates on operational details of the Elekta Triux MEG System and is targeted to individuals who may be interested in using the imaging facility.

In this lecture, Lauri Parkkonen of Elekta presents a range of studies that illustrate the current possibilities of MEG. He also discusses the nature of MEG responses and how that relates to optimal experimental design. In addition, he elucidates some future prospects of MEG, both in methodological development and addressable neuroscience questions.
