About this book

Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and electroencephalography (EEG) are very important and complementary modalities since fMRI offers high spatial resolution while EEG provides a direct measurement of neuronal activity with high temporal resolution. Interest in the integration of these two types of data is growing rapidly as it promises to yield important new insights into human brain activity, as has already occurred in the case of epilepsy.  Indeed, it seems certain that integrated EEG-fMRI will play an increasing role in neuroscience and in the clinical study of various brain disorders.  This book discusses in depth all aspects of EEG-fMRI, including physiological principles and technical and methodological issues such as EEG artefact reduction methods, image quality, and data analysis strategies.  Detailed consideration is given to all potential applications, primarily in the fields of sleep research, cognitive neuroscience, and clinical neurology and psychiatry.  All of the authors are recognized experts in the field, and the text is supported by numerous informative illustrations.

Reviews

From the reviews: “The editors have gathered an excellent group of authors to contribute highly technical and up-to-date chapters on the highly specialized technique of EEG-fMRI. … This book will be helpful to readers interested in the technique and in cognitive neurosciences. It will be useful for anyone interested in learning more about this technique and can easily be used by all levels of learners or practitioners. … I would recommend it to interested readers.” (Joseph F. Drazkowski, Doody’s Review Service, March, 2010)
