Whole head Magnetoencephalography (MEG) scans provide dynamic images of human brain function at a millisecond scale, enabling us to study the rapid communication of neuronal populations between different cortical areas. This diagnostic technique can help us trace autism and brain tumors and even understand behavioral problems.
One of our own, Greek research scientist Dimitris Pantazis pointed out the above, speaking with Ana-mpa about his latest research findings in regard to the decoding of human brain activities.
Serres-born Dimitrios Pantazis has graduated from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. He joined the McGovern Institute in 2010, and he currently oversees the operation of the recently established Magnetoencephalography (MEG) Laboratory within the Martinos Imaging Center at MIT. Before moving to MIT, he was a Research Assistant Professor at the University of Southern California. His research interest is in the application of signal processing theory to the analysis of neuro-imaging data, including MEG, EEG and MRI. He has collaborated with many neuroscience researchers and has published over 70 articles in scientific journals and conference proceedings.
