NatMEG Journalclub

NatMEG Journalclub

Every second Friday at 11:00-12:00, we meet to discuss methods, issues, and applications in MEG.

The journal club is for everybody: researchers, students, and clinicians. All NatMEG users, and otherwise interested in learning about MEG and related methods, are welcome to join.

 

Aim of the journalclub

The aim of the journal club is to get together and discuss interesting studies, methods, and issues in electrophysiological studies. The focus is on MEG with human subjects (healthy and disease), but EEG and LFP studies are also welcome.

Topics can range from single studies, methods (from basic implementation, analysis tools, or more advanced issues), to conceptual issues (e.g., neuroanatomy or physics of bio-electrical fields). Topics from basic cognitive science to clinical applications are all welcome. We also encourage to present your own studies you recently have published, or are about to publish.

In each journal club meeting, there will be a selected reading assignment related to the topic of the meeting. We take turns to pick an article, book chapter, etc. and give a short (5-10 min) presentation of the topic/method/application followed by a joint discussion of the topic and the questions raised in the presentation. The aim is to provide a forum for discussion of MEG methods (and other related neuromagnetic/electric methods) with experts in an informal setting.

Examples of topics at meetings are: beta oscillations in Parkinson’s disease, receptive fields in auditory cortex, non-parametric statistics on MEG/EEG, DICS beamformer, machine learning and decoding, and much more.
