A Revolutionary Brain Scanning Helmet?

Aug 10, 2020


Have you ever imagined having an entire brain wave scan done? Do you know the device that is used to scan your entire brain? You’re looking for a whole head magnetoencephalography system. These are usually some type of helmet that fits snugly around the head. With this device, the magnetic waves in your brain are measured by noting the activity of brain cells throughout the brain. With these devices, we are able to make correct measurements about neurological patients’ brains and further investigate brain development and degradation.


Introducing the MEG


The magnetoencephalography (MEG) system has been used for decades now. People have been trying to further understand the brain as best as they can. In order to do so, they need to take scans during different emotions, thoughts, social patterns and other various situations. Using this device will allow scientists to revolutionize the brain imaging field.

A major problem around these MEG machines is the capability of sensing magnetic waves within the brain while ignoring the magnetic waves from the Earth. Researchers have found ways to dispel the magnetic waves of the Earth from a room by developing magnetic field coils. These coils are dispersed around the room to cancel out any outside magnetic waves.

This new MEG system is supposed to be more cost efficient, better at scanning the brain and has a much better comfort level than the previous models.
