Biomedical Imaging Lab
The Biomagnetic Imaging laboratory conducts basic and clinical research on brain function with a focus on electromagnetic brain imaging using magnetoencephalography (MEG), electroencephalography (EEG), and navigated transcranial magnetic stimulation (nTMS). The laboratory develops cutting-edge algorithms and protocols for multimodal functional brain imaging. The laboratory provides clinical services such as functional brain mapping in patients with brain lesions, and epileptic zone localization in patients with epilepsy. The laboratory is also a core research facility for human neuroscience research studies in Biomagnetic brain imaging.  Learn more
