Caption: Girl aged 9 in a Magnetoencephalograph (MEG) scanner. The girl is wearing a cap fitted with a network of electrodes for use in the electroencephalography (EEG) studies carried put concurrently with the MEG scan. The scanner detects the extremely small magnetic fields generated by neural activity in different parts of the brain. The resulting data is used with other techniques to investigate psychiatric and neurological disorders such as ADHD, epilepsy and autism also age-related memory and cognitive syndromes such as Alzheimer's and dementia. The eye-tracking device in front of the subject gives data on the gaze related to the brain activity and information on blinking or head movement which may influence the co-ordinates of neural currents. Photographed at the Oxford Centre for Human Brain Activity, UK.(Simulation by model).
