The University of Oxford and OHBA hosted MEG UK 2017, an annual conference focused on bringing together research groups working with magnetoencephalography (MEG) in the UK. The conference began with a one-day educational workshop on the 22nd March, followed by two days of the main conference. The main sponsors for MEG UK 2017 were the MRC, CTF MEG, Elekta Neuromag, and York Instruments. MEG UK 2017 was also supported by SR Research, Calpendo, and Advanced Medical Equipment/Compumedics.
Keynote presentations were given by
- Christoph Michel: EEG microstates as basic building blocks of mentation at rest.
- Stephanie Jones: Biophysically Principled Modeling of Human MEG/EEG signals Reveals Novel Mechanisms and Meaning of Brain Rhythms.
- Pascal Fries: Rhythms for Cognition: Communication through Coherence.
