Several patient populations were first studied in Denver with MEG as well: 1) patients with schizophrenia, schizoaffective disorder, bipolar disorder and Fragile X syndrome. Our current research projects focus on movement disorders, such as Parkinson’s and Huntington’s diseases, as well as on clinical populations with traumatic brain injuries. Please visit for more information.
