Lecture 1: NeuroSQUID
Why High-Tc SQUIDs? MEG technology is introduced (SQUIDS, helium recycling system, etc.). In particular, the difference High-Tc SQUIDS vs. Low-Tc SQUIDS is stressed: High-Tc are simpler, cheaper, and perhaps better as well due to several reasons described (biomagnetism concepts, technologies comparison, signal-to-noise ratio, etc). The hope for this project is to validate technology in neuroscience studies, starting with the High-Tc SQUIDS based MEG findings from the studies presented.
