Combining Neuroimaging Techniques: The Future

This chapter focuses on the fusion between electromagnetic and hemodynamic signals for brain mapping. Since measurement techniques have their own strengths and limitations, combining different experimental approaches to probe more effectively a scientific question is a commonplace idea. In the human brain imaging domain, two or more imaging techniques are often combined to investigate a cognitive process or a disease, in addition to other measures such as behavioral testing. Recently, the combination of electro- or magnetoencephalography with fMRI or positron emission tomography has become more and more popular amongst neuroscientists.

Keywords: brain mapping; neuroimaging; brain activity; magnetoencephalography; experimental approaches
