SP Kaisu Lankinen. Studying brain activity during movie viewing with magnetoencephalography

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

In this talk, I present the results of my doctoral thesis about brain activity during movie viewing measured with magnetoencephalography (MEG). I briefly present the basics of MEG and advantages of studying brain activity in naturalistic experimental settings, as well as results and methodological advances of our work. Using movies as stimuli helps us understand sensory and cognitive brain processes of our everyday life. Here I will describe what we have discovered about the brain using Maya Deren’s movie “At Land”.
