Abstract: We developed a multichannel system based on superconducting quantum interference devices (SQUIDs) for magnetoencephalography measurements. Our system consists of 163 fully-integrated SQUID magnetometers, 154 channels and 9 references, and all of the operations are performed inside a magnetically-shielded room. The system exhibits a magnetic field noise spectral density of approximatively 5 fT/Hz1=2. The presented magnetoencephalography is the first system working in a clinical environment in Italy.
Keywords: superconductivity; SQUIDs; MEG
