Welcome to the website for the NIH MEG-North America Workshop, November 1st and 2nd, 2016

It is our pleasure to invite you to the NIH. This meeting is intended to bring the North American MEG community together, to foster collaboration and synergy across laboratories. In order to best accomplish this, we wish to charge the attendees of the meeting to address the following four questions:

  1. What does MEG add to the field of neuroscience above and beyond other existing techniques?
  2. How can we support the evolution of MEG acquisition and methods, through both software and hardware?
  3. How can we develop and support infrastructure to share data and facilitate big science?
  4. How could an MEG-North America consortium work to address these issues?

The meeting will feature moderated panel discussions, didactic morning sessions for those new to the field, and a forum for lab directors to discuss the research being done at their site, to facillitate collaboration and provide a resource for student attendees. There will also be a scientific poster sessions where attendees can showcase their latest findings.

We are also pleased to announce the following keynote speakers:
