Harnessing the Power of Magnetic Fields to Map the Brain


Magnetoencephalography, or MEG scan, works by recording brain magnetic fields generated from the electrical signals of neurons communicating with each other in the brain. Unlike electrical fields recorded via EEG, magnetic fields are not altered by intervening brain tissue, bone or fat. MEG offers superior capability to localize where in the brain activity is being … Continue reading Harnessing the Power of Magnetic Fields to Map the Brain
