Our Program is equipped with state-of-the-art MEG instrumentation.
- Elekta Vectorview: 306 MEG channels (204 planar gradiometers and 102 magnetometers)
- 60 simultaneous EEG channels
- Simultaneous ECG, EOG recordings
- Simultaneous recording of 8 analog channels (for e.g. audio, respiration, skin conductance, etc.)
- All channels sampled at up to 5KHz
- Magnetic shielding provided by a 7-tons magnetically-shielded room with active flux compensation (MaxShield™ technology, Elekta)
- Online head-movement monitoring and offline correction provided by MaxMove™ technology (Elekta)
Lab space & Program suite
MEG data analysis is computationally demanding and challenging. Our program has access to powerful computation resources supported by Froedtert's and the Medical College of Wisconsin's information services:
- 16-processors Linux cluster
- Multiplatform data server
- Secured ftp server for rapid and convenient access from on-campus and off-campus collaborators and MEG investigators
- Additional resources are kindly provided by MCW's Department of Physiology
