George O'Neill

Post-doctoral Researcher

George graduated from the University of Nottingham with a Masters degree in Physics, where in his final project he was introduced to magnetoencephalography (MEG). He went on to use the technology to complete a PhD at the Sir Peter Mansfield Imaging Centre under the supervision of Matthew Brookes investigating the dynamic properties of functional networks in the brain. In 2016 he undertook his first postdoc in the lab of Sue Francis on the Touchmap project, which investigated (dys)function in the somatosensory cortex using both MEG and 7T MRI.

In 2019 he moved to UCL to work with Gareth Barnes in establishing the nascent optically-pumped MEG facility at the Department of Imaging Neuroscience. During that time he also developed methods to improve imaging function originating from the hippocampus with MEG. A useful move it turns out, as now he has joined the Human Electrophysiology Lab to do just that on an array of modalities.
