Nordic MEG Hub mini-symposium: Understanding and handling MEG data variability

We welcome everyone involved or interested in handling MEG data to join us at Nordic MEG Hub mini-symposium arranged in collaboration with Aalto & HUS!

The topic of the event is “Understanding and handling MEG data variability”. During the seminars, we will address sources of MEG data variability, including measurement- and site-related variability. We will discuss how it affects different measures which can be obtained from MEG data, methods of addressing or reducing variability and present possible approaches to more problematic sources of variability.

Date, time, and location:
9th of November
14:00 – 17:30
Mattilanniemi, A-building (2nd floor), room MaA211
