    Abstract

    MEG is now well-established as a non-invasive tool for measuring human brain function. However conventional MEG instruments are not suited for use in a variety of populations. We describe two novel MEG systems: one that has been custom built for use with pre-school aged children; and another for use with cochlear implant patients. We will discuss the specific problems associated with neuromagnetic measurements in each of these populations; the engineering solutions and trade-offs implemented in each MEG system; and new avenues for research opened by these new instruments.
