Magnetoencephalography/Magnetic Source Imaging

Magnetoencephalography (MEG) is a non-invasive method of recording the magnetic fields generated by the brain at rest or during information processing. Magnetic Source Imaging (MSI) refers to the set of procedures used for estimating the origin of the recorded magnetic fields and projecting them on the static images of the brain, thus revealing what brain areas were activated and produced the recorded fields. That way the brain tissue responsible for abnormal activation (as in epilepsy) can be identified and so can the brain regions responsible for sensation, movement and higher cognitive functions like language.
