Club MEG is our version of a journal club. We welcome NIH MEG researchers to lead discussions on any MEG topic, including interesting papers, experiment ideas, analysis techniques, or finding from your research.
Interested in presenting a topic? Email Fred Carver at firstname.lastname@example.org or Jeff Stout at email@example.com if you would like to present.
Notifications of upcoming talks are sent to the MEG_ANNOUNCE listserv.
