Workshop on Australasian Magnetoencephalography | WAM 2019

10-13 December 2019

The Faculty of Human Sciences at Macquarie University is hosting this 4-day workshop which is funded by the ARC Centre of Excellence in Cognition and its Disorders (CCD) Legacy Support Scheme.

This workshop will showcase national and international research on cognitive processing using the brain imaging technology of magnetoencephalography (MEG). MEG is a technique for measuring and visualizing how the human brain processes sensations and perceptions, language, thoughts and emotions.

The focus of this workshop will be on exploring clinical applications of MEG and on building relationships with clinicians who have an interest in using MEG in their clinical research and/or practice.

The workshop will include invited speakers who will cover six specific thematic areas which target future opportunities for health research funding:

  • Epilepsy
  • Developmental Neuroscience
  • Hearing
  • Neurology
  • Autism
  • Psychiatry
