This conference brought together international experts to review and present on the latest advances in brain imaging techniques and the challenges and opportunities associated with combining these techniques to further our understanding of health and disease.  The meeting was organised by Michael Hogan in the School of Psychology at NUI Galway, in collaboration with Joshua Balsters (Trinity College Institute of Neuroscience, Dublin), Jacinta O'Shea (Oxford University), and Steven Jackson (Nottingham University) and was supported by the European Science Foundation (ESF) and the Health Research Board (HRB). Experts presented on all major brain imaging techniques and focused in particular on measurement challenges associated interference between measurement systems (e.g., electrical/magnetic shielding of EEG/MEG electrodes/squids), integration of measurement outputs (e.g., integration of high temporal resolution but low spatial resolution EEG data with high spatial resolution but low temporal resolution fMRI data), integration of theoretical foundations to support measurement integration (e.g., understanding the relationship between electrical (EEG) and magnetic (MEG) field dynamics and blood flow (fMRI) dynamics in the brain).  The conference highlighted the rapid advances that are being made at the levels of theory, measurement, and computational analysis systems which are furthering our understanding of brain functions in states of health and disease.
