First language study using new generation of wearable brain scanner

MEG cap prototype

We have carried out the first study of human cognition using a new generation of brain scanner that can be worn like a helmet. Dr Matt Brookes's team's work marks an important step forward in the translation of their new technique from the laboratory bench to a genuinely useful tool for cognitive neuroscience and clinical application.

The study, published in  Neuroimage has been undertaken by researchers at the  Sir Peter Mansfield Imaging Centre, University of Nottingham and the Wellcome Centre for Human Neuroimaging, UCL. It is part of a five-year Wellcome funded project which has the potential to revolutionise the world of human brain imaging.
