About MEG Studies


Magnetoencephalography (or MEG) is a passive and safe method of measuring brain activity.  MEG detects the magnetic fields created naturally by your brain.  MEG is non-invasive, quiet, and comfortable. Participants sit in the MEG chair in a special room that filters out magnetic fields from the outside. During MEG studies, participants might be asked to look at pictures or videos on a screen, listen to sounds through headphones, or press a button in response to questions.  To learn more about MEG and how it works, visit the MEG Laboratory website here
