Wearable Magnetoencephalography (MEG)

Matt Brookes and his team take another giant step forward towards building a practical MEG scanner. In their latest work published in Nature [1], E. Boto and coworkers show that not only is it possible to build a high-performance MEG scanner with non-cryogenic sensors (QZFM) but that you can ‘wear’ the scanner and collect data while the head is moving. The video below does an excellent job of explaining the significance of their work.
