EEG-fMRI is a multimodal neuroimaging technique which enables the acquisition of EEG and fMRI data synchronously. The technique is being used worldwide to evaluate normal brain function as well as brain function associated with recognized brain disorders.
Scalp EEG reflects the brain‘s electrical activity, more specifically it represents post-synaptic potentials in the cerebral cortex. fMRI detects haemodynamic changes throughout the brain known as the BOLD effect (Blood Oxygen Level Dependent). EEG-fMRI therefore enables the direct correlation of these two important measures of brain activity.
