  • Explains the basic signal processing and source localization techniques
  • Includes measurements of perceptual and cognitive brain processes
  • Discusses hot, open and challenging issues in MEG
  • Written by leading experts

"Magnetoencephalography (MEG) provides a time-accurate view into human brain function. The concerted action of neurons generates minute magnetic fields that can be detected---totally noninvasively---by sensitive multichannel magnetometers. The obtained millisecond accuracycomplements information obtained by other modern brain-imaging tools. Accurate timing is quintessential in normal brain function, often distorted in brain disorders. The noninvasiveness and time-sensitivityof MEG are great assets to developmental studies, as well.

This multiauthored book covers an ambitiously wide range of MEG research from introductory to advanced level, from sensors to signals, and from focal sources to the dynamics of cortical networks. Written by active practioners of this multidisciplinary field, the book contains tutorials for newcomers and chapters of new challenging methods and emerging technologies to advanced MEG users. The reader will obtain a firm grasp of the possibilities of MEG in the study of audition, vision, somatosensation, sensorimotor integration, pain, and cognitive functions both in healthy subjects and several neurological and psychiatric disorders. Development is covered from fetal and pediatric studies to the effects of aging. This volume brings fresh and welcome diversity to the existing MEG literature."
