Running MEG studies
Like MRI projects, MEG project proposals should first be presented at an IIG ImagersInterestGroup, and then time "slots" requested via the MEG form available here RequestForScanningSlots, which should be downloaded, completed and emailed to MarionOrmandy and/or LucilleMurby to be considered at the next meeting of the IMC ImagingManagementCommittee.
To propose a study, you will need the RequestForMegSlots form.
Once your project proposal has been endorsed by the IMC, please email YuryShtyrov. (Precise scheduling of MEG scanning slots is still to be decided).
Note that MEG projects on healthy volunteers do not require LREC approval, but do require CPREC approval (an existing CPREC for behavioural studies is not sufficient; you will need to make a new CPREC request, or seek an amendment to an existing CPREC approval, to extend it to MEG). The CPREC application needs to include the usual information about your psychological paradigm/s in addition to a line explaining that you will be carrying out the study in MEG. The application also needs to include the information sheet that will be given to participants, for which the following can be used as a template attachment:General_CPREC_MEG_volunteer_info.rtf may be useful in this respect.
