    Neural oscillations and next-generation MEG sensors conference at Chalmers

    Welcome to join us at “Neural oscillations and next-generation MEG sensors”, May 27-28th at Chalmers, Gothenburg. OBS! New dates 27-28 May (lunch-to-lunch). This event is organized on the background of the NeuroSQUID project, a collaboration between Chalmers, MedTechWest, University of Gothenburg and NatMEG, working over the next 5 years towards the development of a next-generation, head-shape-adjustable highTc-SQUID system, enabling millimeter sensor-to-scalp proximity. Over 2 days (ca lunch to lunch), internationally…

    Welcome to a new MedTech West seminar: Application of MEG to study autism with Elena V Orekhova

    Abstract: Autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) – is the genetically heterogeneous group of neurodevelopmental disorders characterized by problems with social interaction and communication, as well as by presence of restricted and repetitive patterns of behavior. Altered balance between neural excitation and inhibition is thought to be an important feature of ASD. Brain electromagnetic oscillations in high gamma range (>40 Hz) are closely linked to regulation of E/I balance and may throw…
