The ENIGMA Consortium The ENIGMA MEG Working Group

Enigma Project - MEG working group

The goal of the ENIGMA MEG Working Group is to explore the spatiotemporal patterns of brain oscillatory activity, and determine how these patterns relate to age, gender, and common genetic variants. Data from numerous modalities have demonstrated a hierarchical organization of the brain from sensory systems to higher cortical areas. There is some evidence that this hierarchical organization may also be reflected in the spatial distribution of intrinsic timescales of activity. This ENIGMA working group intends to explore these patterns across the lifespan. To achieve the highest possible number of subjects, this needs to be done by meta-analysis.
