Australian Center Readies Brain Research Program for Addition of Elekta MEG System
Date:4/18/2011

nique capabilities in many areas. Broad categories include:

  • Cognitive and visual processes, such as decision-making and facial processing. For instance, MEG can be used in multifocal visual source localization, as well as studying people’s reactions in various situations requiring a decision, for example, in response to a moral dilemma or a market product.

  • Neurological diseases/disorders, such as stroke and dementia. Epilepsy also is a major focus, as MEG has been used widely to map epileptic foci before surgically treating the disease. Swinburne investigators will be working closely with a local epilepsy center to determine how MEG can assist its program.

  • Mental health disorders, such as ADHD, autism, phobias, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), compulsive hoarding and buying, and body dysmorphic disorder, in which sufferers dwell on minor physical imperfections.

"People with autistic tendencies pick up different types of social cues and they process social information quite differently," he explains. "We want to know the differences between various disorders and normal functioning.

"A study I will coordinate is an investigation of moral reasoning in OCD," he continues. "We know that people with OCD have a hyperdeveloped sense of morality, so we can use MEG to compare how they perform certain tasks with people who have an underdeveloped sense of morality."

Swinburne researchers will use their Elekta Neuromag TRIUX not only to explore the nature of diseases and disorders, but also to assess the impact of different treatments, Prof. Kyrios adds.

"MEG will be very useful in helping us disentangle how various therapies work and what are the differential processes," he observes. "Are drugs working differently than behavioral therapies?
