MEGIN Spotlight – Prof Nobukazu Nakasato, Chair of Epileptology Dept, Tohoku University, Japan
MEGIN invited Professor Nobukazu Nakasato, Chair of the Epileptology Department at Tohoku University, Japan. Professor Nakasato, describes in this talk how is Magnetoencephalography (MEG) is incorporated into the operational flow of the epileptology department, i.e. how is MEG used in conjunction with other modalities. In this interview, he also touches upon how a MEG scan might benefit the epilepsy care plan for patients.
MEGIN Spotlight – Dr. Olaf Hauk, MRC Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit at Cambridge University
MEGIN invited Dr. Olaf Hauk, the Senior Investigator Scientist at the MRC Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit at the University of Cambridge as a guest to give our viewers an insight into how Magnetoencephalography (MEG) is utilized at the Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit in a number of research studies using a multi-modal imaging approach to problems in the neuroscience of language and cognition.
MEGIN Spotlight – How does Magnetoencephalography (MEG) help with clinical pre-evaluation for epilepsy surgery?
MEGIN has frequently asked Magnetoencephalography (MEG) thought and key opinion leaders the question, how MEG can support and help with clinical pre-evaluation for epilepsy surgery. The question is answered by two KOL’s active globally, Dr. Stefan Rampp and Dr. Saleem Malik, both active in the epilepsy neurosurgery departments at their respective hospitals.
MEGIN Spotlight – McGovern Institute for Brain Research at MIT discussing utilization of MEG
Dimitrios Pantazis, the Principal Research Scientist and Director of the MEG Lab at the McGovern Institute for Brain Research at MIT discusses his two areas of research focus: human visual recognition and Alzheimer’s disease as well as the future of MEG and predicted advances in machine learning and AI.
MEGIN Spotlight – How has the usage of MEG made a difference to this Neuroscience Center?
Dr. Saleem Malik discusses how epileptologist became comfortable with MEG Technology and realized the benefits of its utility since its installation in 2012.
In 2021, MEG has now become part of the operational standard of care for pre-surgical evaluation in epilepsy patients at this Neuroscience Center.
MEGIN Spotlight – MEG Epilepsy Case Studies
MEGIN Spotlight – Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital discussing Magnetoencephalography
Dr. Angel Hernandez serves as the Division Chief of Neurosciences and Dr. Paul Ferrari, the Technical Director for MEG at the Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital. The Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital is a 234-bed regional referral center and teaching hospital based in Michigan. It offers advanced pediatric specialty care with more than 300 pediatric physicians who practice in more than 50 pediatric specialties and programs. The hospital is Michigan’s largest neonatal center and is ranked as one of the Best Children’s Hospital by U.S. News & World Report.
MEGIN Spotlight – Dr. Malik discussing how MEG has helped in delineate frontal lobe epilepsy
Dr. Saleem Malik is our guest on another episode of our MEGIN Spotlight this week. Dr. Malik is the Medical Director of the Comprehensive Epilepsy program as well as the Magnetoencephalography Lab in Fort Worth, Texas. In this episode, Dr. Malik discusses how MEG has helped in delineate frontal lobe epilepsy and other areas of epileptic foci.
MEGIN Spotlight – Dr. Fernando Maestu, Center for Biomedical Technology of Madrid
Dr. Fernando Maestu leads many extremely interesting studies around Alzheimer’s Disease and Dementia that have required and utilized the use of Magnetoencephalography Technology to assess AD patients. In this spotlight, we find out more about how the Lab uses MEG data to support Alzheimer’s Disease.
MEGIN Spotlight – Epilepsy patient’s incredible journey now seizure free after brain surgery
An incredible journey of a teenager who is now able to live free of epileptic seizures since brain surgery. This was achieved through a combination of methods and tools, including Magnetoencephalography (MEG), a functional brain imaging technology.
MEGIN Spotlight – Dr. Saleem Malik, Fort Worth, Texas USA
An insightful discussion how using neuroimaging tools including Magnetoencephalography (MEG) helps patients with refractory epilepsy. Dr Malik explains how MEG can solve problems for those patients where medication is not bringing epileptic seizures under control.
MEGIN Spotlight – Sven Braeutigam, Oxford Centre for Human Brain Activity (OHBA)
Welcome to the another episode of the MEGIN Spotlight series this January 2021 in which we focus on topics revolving around Magnetoencephalography, research conducted in the MEG field, and discussion about utilisation of MEG in treatment of patients diagnosed with neurological disorders.
We are excited to have Sven Braeutigam, the Senior Researcher and MEG Physicist of the Oxford Centre for Human Brain Activity as our guest.
MEGIN Spotlight – Dr. James Wheless, Chief Neurologist at Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital
Welcome to another episode of the MEGIN Spotlight series in which we focus on topics, discussions, research, and utilisation of MEG in treatment of patients diagnosed with neurological disorders.
We are excited to have Dr James Wheless as our guest, who is the Chief Neurologist and Co-director of the Neuroscience Institute at Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital in Memphis.
MEGIN Spotlight – Patricia Kuhl, Co-Director of the Institute for Learning and Brain Science (I-LABS)
I-LABS is a center dedicated to discovering the fundamental principles of human learning, with a special emphasis on early learning and brain development. For MEGIN, I-LABS has been a long-term partner to evolve the MEG field and we have established a strategic research partnership between both parties. The idea behind this collaboration is to enable both organizations to further support our device’s software and hardware developments resulting from research and projects conducted by I-LABS, an integral part of MEGIN’s research and product development roadmap.
MEGIN Spotlight – Dr. Stefan Rampp
MEGIN Spotlight invited Dr Stefan Rampp from University Hospital in Erlangen to share his knowledge and experience using Magnetoencephalography (MEG) in treatment of patients diagnosed with neurological disorders.
