Multimodal Neuroimaging: Methods and Applications of Combined EEG-fMRI

Functional MRI (fMRI) and electroencephalography (EEG) are two of the most widely used techniques for studying human brain function, and are based on changes in haemodynamic and electrophysiological activity respectively. While each provides a crucial window into brain function, combining them has the potential to give more detailed spatiotemporal information. The advantages and disadvantages of combined EEG-fMRI will be discussed, along with
applications in basic and clinical neuroscience.
