Magnetoencephalography (MEG) is a noninvasive multi-modality imaging device that is excellent at delineating networks within the brain. It is used clinically in the field of surgical epilepsy as well as tumor localization. From a research perspective the MEG is used in the fields of autism, mild to moderate TBI, neuropsychiatric disorders, as well as functional disorders of the brain.
