Elekta Chosen to Deliver Sophisticated Brain Mapping Technology to the Mind Research Network
Date:4/17/2009

ATLANTA, April 17 /PRNewswire/ -- The Mind Research Network (MRN) will bring world-leading technology to Albuquerque, with the acquisition of an Elekta Neuromag(R), a device for non-invasive measurement of brain activity using Magnetoencephalography (MEG) technology.

MRN has been utilizing MEG technology to study brain function and disorders for approximately the last five years; however, the organization will upgrade to the Elekta Neuromag MEG system in early 2009, allowing researchers to record human brain activity better and more accurately than before.

"Currently, we investigate the fundamental mechanisms of learning and memory in healthy individuals, as well as those with brain-based disorders such as traumatic brain injury, epilepsy, drug addiction, and schizophrenia. We also are collaborating with Dr. Bruce Fisch, director of the epilepsy treatment program at the University of New Mexico to develop a clinical MEG program. This program will help to guide neurosurgical intervention in people with epilepsy and brain tumors."

"With a long-term commitment to the development of MEG technology, Elekta was the natural choice when MRN made its decision to purchase a new MEG system," says Stephen Otto, Chairman of Elekta's Neuromag Business. "We are pleased to see an increasing interest around the world for Elekta Neuromag systems, particularly in the U.S. We will continue to develop new features and technologic
