In October 2013 the Swedish national facility for magnetoencephalography (NatMEG) opend at the Karolinska Institute (KI) in Stockholm. From UFBI, Lars Nyberg was one of the co-applicants for the grant to acquire the MEG-scanner and he is also sitting in the national steering board for NatMEG.
Besides beeing the first facility in Sweden with a MEG-scanner (a Electa Neuromag TRIUX), the facility is unique due to the focus on precision timing of the stimuli presentation. There are several different kinds of stimuli and response equipment allowing researchers to study anything from tactile processing to executive control (www.natmeg.se).
The core staff includes Martin Ingvar (P.I.), Daniel Lundqvist (project manager), Stephen Whitmarsh (post-doc) and Mimmi Wernman (administrative support).
