NEW! Brain Mapping 101 (Advanced)

Explore The Neuromag®, a state-of-the-art neuromagnetic recording system, capable of non-invasively recording magnetic fields produced by neuronal activity occurring within the brain. This observed data is called the magnetoencephalogram (MEG).

Your presenter Erika J. C. Laing received her bachelor's degree in cognitive science from Carnegie Mellon University in 2001.

Upon receiving her master's degree in May 2010, Erika was offered a position as clinical associate at the UPMC Brain Mapping Center and charged with the task of developing and implementing MEG-based pre-surgical mapping procedures. Secondarily, she conducts cognitive research of various psychological phenomenon, and facilitates other researchers who use the MEG facility. She also assists in the maintenance of equipment, engineering solutions to technological challenges, and trains researchers in the analysis and interpretation of MEG data.
