Whole-head OPM-MEG enables noninvasive assessment of functional connectivity

Trends Neurosci. 2021 Jul;44(7):510-512. doi: 10.1016/j.tins.2021.04.006. Epub 2021 May 5.


A recent paper by Boto et al. established reliability of noninvasive functional connectivity measurements with a new whole-head optically pumped magnetometer magnetoencephalography (OPM-MEG) system. This rapidly developing technology enables a conformal sensor array to accommodate different head sizes and opens up new avenues for experiments in more naturalistic settings.

Keywords: on-scalp MEG; resting-state networks; task-based connectivity.
