Justin F. Schneiderman, researcher at MedTech West and Sahlgrenska Academy has, together with colleagues at Chalmers University of Technology, Karolinska Institute’s NatMEG center, and Sahlgrenska Academy recently been granted almost 35 million SEK for the collaborative project NeuroSQUID.
Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation (KAW), the largest private financier of research in Sweden, granted the funding for a new 5-year project that combines nanotechnology and neuroscience. The project, under the leadingship of Dag Winkler, professor in physics at Chalmers University of Technology, aims to develop superconducting sensors—so-called nanoSQUIDs—for recording the weak magnetic fields generated by brain activity. The collaborative team includes professors Martin Ingvar at Karolinska Institute and NatMEG in Stockholm, Mikael Elam and Johan Wessberg at Sahlgrenska Academy and Chalmers researchers Thilo Bauch and Alexei Kalabukhov.
