New Imaging Bike Helmet Records Brain Activity Like Never Before


Okay, so it’s not a real bike helmet.

Scientists in Europe have found a way to combine MRI and MEG scans together to measure brain activity in real time, and it just looks like a bike helmet.

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans for structure, measuring blood flow and oxygenation levels.

Magnetoencephalography (MEG) scans for activity as brain cells fire a message.

This is an incredible breakthrough because it can help doctors understand what is exactly happening in the […]
