The WISE Technologist
We are thrilled to launch a new training program, the WISE Technologist. This workshop series is designed to provide practical considerations and hands-on practice for performing quality clinical MEG. The WISE Technologist workshops will be live webinars, hosted at an expert MEG site. Each workshop will be a three-part training, including an online lecture led by Professor John Mosher, hands-on virtual guidance for data acquisition by expert technologists and MEGIN trainers, and hands-on virtual guidance for data processing and analysis by expert MEG analysts.
Access to all 5 training workshops costs $2,000USD per site. If you are interested in registering users at your site for all 5 workshops in the WISE Technologist series, please email Elizabeth Bock at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can meet us in 2021 at the following events:

Understanding how pre- and post-natal exposures influence brain development using MEG
This MEGIN Masterclass presented by Dr. Julia Stephen will discuss how, “the brain develops rapidly throughout gestation and childhood. However, little is known about how pre- and post-natal exposures impact brain development in children. Our work has focused on examining how rearing environment and prenatal exposures impact brain development using MEG. MEG is especially well-suited for studying children across the age range because it is silent and requires minimal participant preparation time. Rearing environment, including socioeconomic status and maternal factors, influences brain development as revealed by delayed evoked responses and altered neural oscillations. These results indicate rearing environment needs to be accounted for in future studies to better understand human brain development in health and disease.”

Quantum leap: How hardware and software leaders MEGIN and BESA combined their strengths to streamline MEG analysis
MEG/EEG software pioneers BESA have partnered with MEGIN to bring their advanced software tools and data analysis experience together. For the first time, MEG data acquisition and analysis workflows enable the user to lift the treasures that lie hidden in the MEG signals with ease. This masterclass episode will look beyond the surface of the new epilepsy analysis workflow and discuss some of the innovations that blend into the new user experience.
*The referred software are works in progress.

Functional networks impairment along the process of AD: prediction value and resilience factors
Fernando Maestú will discuss a series of studies, which mainly used MEG to record the resting-state activity and a memory task in patients with Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI), Subjective Cognitive Decline (SCD), and in healthy subjects at preclinical stage or at risk for developing dementia. All these findings together indicate that hyper synchronization of the brain networks could be an excellent non-invasive biomarker for tracking the disease and evaluate interventions.

Brainstorm focusing on MEG
This Masterclass will provide an introduction to Brainstorm, an open-source application committed to the analysis of brain recordings (MEG, EEG, fNIRS, ECoG, depth electrodes and multiunit electrophysiology). Brainstorm’s objective is to share user-friendly tools with those using MEG/EEG as an experimental technique. Brainstorm is an approachable application that has an intuitive interface with no programming knowledge required. Following this introduction Masterclass, we aim to provide a deeper dive into Brainstorm’s capabilities at a later date.
