Meet the Magnetoencephalography FacultyThe Neuromagnetism Laboratory at Henry Ford Hospital has a 148-channel Clinical whole-head Neuromagnetometer as well as a smaller 7-channel animal research system for recording magnetic brain fields from the brain. We are one of the only 3 centers in the Midwest and one of 20 clinical sites in the USA. Magnetoencephalography (MEG) is clinically used for presurgical localization for epilepsy and determining eloquent cortex prior to tumor or AVM removal and for epilepsy presurgical planning. We are also using MEG to research disorders such as dystonia schizophrenia, TBI, and autism to find imaging biomarkers that can predict outcome. We combine MEG and EEG source analysis along with connectivity analysis of the brain networks to understand how these disorders disrupt normal brain function. Our mission is to utilize MEG as a translational technology to bring classical cellular neurophysiology information to clinical applications. To this end researchers and clinicians, work together to promote the use of non-invasive MEG in the exploration of human brain function.
