Source reconstruction symposium and workshop 2017-06-15

Source Reconstruction in MEG & EEG Symposium & Workshop

~ From Brain-Waves to Neural Sources ~

NatMEG will host a two-day symposium and workshop summer 2017 on source reconstruction methods in MEG and EEG. The workshop will be a national event and open for attendees from all Swedish universities and hospitals interested in electrophysiological methods in science and clinical practice.

Date: June 15th-16th.

Place: Karolinska Institutet

The first day will be devoted to lectures from invited speakers and discussions. The second day will be a hands-on workshop with the aim of teaching how to do source reconstruction on real MEG and EEG data.

The workshop will be the first meeting with the aim of creating a national network of researchers and clinicians working with—or interested in—electrophysiological methods in basic and clinical neuroscience.

The programme includes the following invited speakers and topics:


A full day symposium with invited speaks all experts on source recons truction methods. The symposium will take place in the Rockefeller Lecture Hall, Nobels väg 11.

A full-day hands-on workshop on applying different source localization methods on different EEG and MEG data with Lau Møller Andersen and Mikkel C. Vinding, Karolinska Institutet and special guest star Robert Oostenveld, Donders Institute.

We will go through a typical pipeline for doing source reconstruction while discussing the different steps, and comparing results across different methods. The workshop is aimed at researchers, students and clinicians in basic and applied neuroscience, but will be open for all interested in learning about the topic. Basic experience or knowledge of EEG or MEG is useful before attending the workshop, but prior experience with source reconstruction methods is not required.

The workshop will take place in Room 221, Nobels väg 9, from 9:15 to 16:30

Note: All seats for the workshop is currently filled, but if you are intrested, send us an email and we will put you on the waiting list.

Tutorial material can be found here

The event is free of charge, but as there is a limited amount of seats available on both days, we fill the seats on a first-come-first-serve basis.

When registering, please include your name and affiliation, and whether you wish to attend on day 1, 2, or both days.

Best wishes
