    Postdoc position in MEG-based functional neuroimaging for children with brain cancer available

    The Institute of Neuroscience and Physiology at the Sahlgrenska Academy at the University of Gothenburg (SA/GU) invites applications for a two-year postdoctoral position in neuroscience. The position is funded by a grant from the Swedish Children’s Cancer Fund (Barncancerfonden) with focus on functional neuroimaging with the state-of-the-art magnetoencephalography (MEG) facility at the NatMEG facility, Karolinska Institute ( and a next-generation MEG system under development at SA/GU and the Sahlgrenska University…

    The Brain’s Networks conference

    This conference will give a snapshot of the current state of knowledge about the brain’s networks through perspectives from neuroanatomy, neurophysiology, neurology, psychiatry, psychology, structural MRI, functional brain imaging, advanced data analysis and mathematical modelling of neural networks. It will feature discussions between the speakers, and between the speakers and the audience, on how to integrate the research from these different fields. The last half day will be wholly devoted…

    Distinguished researchers brought to Western Sweden for a symposium on neuro oscillations and next-gen MEG sensors

    A lunch-to-lunch symposium that took place in Gothenburg on May 27-28 brought distinguished researchers from Sweden, Finland, Germany, France, Belgium, and the US. The organizers were particularly proud to host two of the most well-known MEG names in the world: Matti Hämäläinen from Aalto University, Finland and Harvard’s MGH in the US and Riitta Hari from Aalto University. The symposium comprised inspiring lectures, lively “fika” breaks, and delectable meals. Every…

    Master thesis presentation: Thoracic and total body bioimpedance measurements individual variability repeatability and reproducibility

    Welcome to a master thesis presentation presented by Samira Ghomian, MPBME: Thoracic and total body bioimpedance measurements individual variability repeatability and reproducibility Date: Wednesday, June 10th Time: 10.00 Place: Blå Rummet (room 6414), Hörsalsvägen 11, 6th floor Examiner: Bengt Arne Sjöqvist AbstractElectrical bio-impedance (EBI) is defined as the opposition of biological tissue to the flow of electric current.
