Lurie Family Foundations MEG Imaging Center
The Department of Radiology Lurie Family Foundations MEG Imaging Center experienced significant growth and success in recent years with many exciting research projects, publications, media features on our work, and the installation of new, groundbreaking technology.
The center's main areas of research rely on the methodologies of evoked response measures, and evoked and induced oscillatory activity and connectivity based on magnetoencephalography (MEG) recording – such electrophysiological measures are augmented by advanced MRI (focusing on cortical thickness, white matter connectivity, and spectroscopic estimation of regional GABA and glutamate). Researchers at the center apply these advanced techniques to the study of brain development, autism spectrum disorder, and mild traumatic brain injury/concussion.
The imaging center team are grateful to our partners in research studies, our participating families, whose contributions are invaluable.
