Who We Are
We are the BabyMEG Lab under the FNNDSC at Boston Children’s Hospital. The BabyMEG system is at the forefront of MEG technologies and was one of the first systems designed specifically for children 0-4 years of age. The facility itself is ideally located across from the NICU to provide ease of access for patients while bringing together researchers and clinicians to promote an integrated approach to developing technologies and caring for patients.
What We Do
Magnetoencephalography, or MEG, is a noninvasive neuroimaging technique designed to measure brain activity via magnetic fields. MEG measures the change in these magnetic fields to provide an indirect measure of the strength and location of brain activity.
We strive to create a comfortable and child friendly environment for all families visiting the BabyMEG Lab. MEG is completely non-invasive and does not produce any form of radiation. We are able to collect data during natural sleep and still obtain real-time brain activity with excellent spatial resolution.
