MEG Online Analysis Demonstration in SC2002

Meg team demonstrated MEG online analysis system in Super Computing 2002 (SC2002) held in Baltimore, MD,from Nov 16 to 22,2002. Our system seamlessly integrated three phases: measurement of Magnetoencephalography (MEG), computational analysis, and implementation of analysis results. Consequently, the system succeeded in dramatically improving the efficiency in the analysis of brain function.

Overview of Demonstration

Overview of Demonstration

The demonstration was performed as follows.
A Video conference system,Polycom View Station,was used to connect Life Electronics Lab at AIST and SC2002 exhibition hall. A doctor in the hall asked doctors at Life Electronics Lab. to acquire MEG data of a subject via the Polycom system. The MEG at Life Electronics Lab. and Osaka Univ. are directly connected with 1Gbps dedicated line.
Acquired data was directly transferred to Osaka Univ. on the line. Then, the data was analyzed with three cluster systems located in Osaka Univ. and Nanyang Technological Univ. The result of the analysis was delivered to the doctor in Baltimore and then was visualized in an intuitive manner.


The following posters were exhibited in our booth in SC2002.
