Cavendish Colloquium Room, Faraday Building, Lancaster University LA1 4YW

Speakers: Prof. Stephen Swithenby (Open University)

Over the last 40 years physicists, aided and abetted by engineers and computer scientists, have developed many new ways of studying the living brain. First came structural imaging instruments and then a new generation of systems that could image brain function. This talk will review these methods and describe how the enormous magnetic field sensitivity of superconducting quantum interference devices (SQUIDs) can be exploited to measure the currents flowing in the brain.

Event type: Lecture/Talk
