At the Wellcome Centre for Human Neuroimaging, Gareth Barnes’ lab is developing a wearable MEG brain scanning technology, using optically pumped magnetometers (OPM). One of our key public engagement projects, the OPM Collaboration, is embedded in the development of this research.



Patterns of perception

The benefit of art, music and dance for people with Parkinson’s disease was explored by UCL, Central Saint Martins and English National Ballet (ENB).

The ‘Patterns of Perception’ project involved a series of workshops over three weeks in 2019. People with Parkinson’s disease explored dance, music and visual arts and shared their personal experiences.
