The KIT-Maryland MEG Lab
The KIT-Maryland Magnetoencephalography Center at College Park, a campus-wide facility, is the result of a collaboration between the University of Maryland and the Kanazawa Institute of Technology (KIT), Japan.
The resources of the KIT-Maryland Magnetoencephalography Center at College Park, which are available to the University of Maryland community, have been housed at the Maryland Neuroimaging Center since 2014.
Magnetoencephalography (MEG) is a technique for recording brain activity. The MEG device allows fully non-invasive measurements of neuronal activity in the brain, by recording magnetic fields at 160 different sites around the head, and provides precise spatiotemporal localization of brain responses.
The KIT-Maryland MEG Center, in addition to the 160-channel whole-head MEG scanner, also provides a magnetically shielded room, a dedicated stimulus delivery computer, a calibrated stimulus delivery system, magnetic and vibrational noise reference acquisition systems, seven dedicated data acquisition computers, a 3D head-shape digitization system, three computers dedicated to data analysis and long-term data storage.
