NatMEG Journalclub

MEG/EEG Journal club

Every second Friday we meet to discuss methods, issues, and applications in MEG, EEG, and related methods

The journal club is for everybody: researchers, students, and clinicians. Everybody interested in learning about MEG and related techniques is welcome to join.


Aim of the journal club

The journal club aims to get together and discuss interesting studies, methods, and issues in magneto- and electrophysiological studies. The focus is on MEG with human subjects (healthy and disease). Topics can range from single studies, methods (from basic implementation, analysis tools, or 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.

Structure of the meetings

The meetings begin with a 5 to 10-minute presentation of the topic of the meeting. The purpose of the presentation is to identify issues and open for discussion for the rest of the meeting. The reading material for the meeting can be a journal article, a pre-print, a tutorial webpage, or blog post.

Everybody is encouraged to participate in the discussion and to give presentations. The presentations should be short, and should not take hours from you otherwise busy time to prepare. It is not a lecture or review, but an invitation to discussion. It can be a topic you are unfamiliar with but want to discuss to learn more. The aim is to provide a forum for discussion of MEG methods (and other related neuromagnetic/electric methods) in an informal setting.

The topics of the meeting and what to read before the meetings are announced on the journal club email list.
