Advanced imaging technology measures magnetite levels in the living brain – Investigators at the Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) have used magnetoencephalography (MEG) – a technology that measures brain activity by detecting the weak magnetic fields produced by the brain's normal electrical currents—to measure levels of the iron-based mineral called magnetite in the human brain. While magnetite is known to be present in the normal brain and to …
