Published by webworker
A magnetoencephalograph comprising an oxide superconductor magnetic shielded vessel and a cryostat for cooling the magnetic shielded vessel, a multichannel SQUID and a cryostat for cooling the SQUID inserted together in the magnetic shielded vessel from one end of the magnetic shielded vessel, a magnetic-field detection unit situated in the vessel for detecting magnetic fields, and a coupling portion for coupling the SQUID and the magnetic-field detection unit with respect to the signals, and the SQUID and the magnetic-field detection unit being detachable. The magnetoencephalograph makes possible the detection of the very weak magnetic fields from the human brain
