CENIR–MEG/EEG : MEG and EEG core facility for neuroscience research projects

Ouvrir / fermer le sommaire

The CENIR-MEG/EEG core facility is part of the Center for NeuroImaging Research (CENIR). It is dedicated to the development of non-invasive methods that allow visualizing brain activity on a millisecond time scale in normal or pathological conditions. With the latest equipment, the highly skilled team helps academic and industrial partners that wish to undergo clinical or fundamental research to perform the acquisitions as well as to develop integrated analysis tools for multi-level electrophysiological data. CENIR-MEG/ EEG is part of the Institut du Cerveau – ICM core facility network (MRI, PANAM, PRISME…) which facilitates translational research projects.
