Older man in MEG scanner
Patient being scanned by a megnetoencephalographic scanner. This individual's memory is reacting to visual stimulations of faces projected onto a screen in front of him and reactions recorded by a fibre-optic button box under his hand.The scanner detects the extremely small magnetic fields generated by neural activity in different parts of the brain. The resulting data is correlated with other neuro-imaging techniques to investigate psychiatric and neurological disorders such as ADHD, epilepsy and age-related memory and cognitive syndromes such as Alzheimer's and dementia. ..The eye-tracking device in front of the subject gives data on the gaze related to the brain activity and also relays information on any blinking or head movement which may influence the neural currents under scrutiny. Photographed at the Oxford Centre for Human Brain Activity, UK. (Simulation by model).
