The Department of Radiology Lurie Family Foundations MEG Imaging Center has undergone significant growth and success the past few years. There have been many exciting research projects and publications, media features on our work, and new, groundbreaking technology installed.

Our main areas of research endeavor rely on the methodologies of evoked response measures, evoked and induced oscillatory activity and connectivity, based on magnetoencephalography (MEG) recording; such electrophysiological measures are augmented by advanced MRI (focusing on cortical thickness, white matter connectivity and spectroscopic estimation of regional GABA and glutamate). Our principal application domains are to the study of development, autism spectrum disorder and mild traumatic brain injury/concussion.

We are particularly excited to update the partcipating families who are partners in our research studies: Your contributions are invaluable, and we are eager to share what we’ve learned from your participation.
