Study Notes

Neuroimaging Techniques

  • Electroencephalography (EEG) has excellent temporal resolution, allowing it to measure neural activity on a millisecond timescale.
  • Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) measures changes in blood oxygenation levels to infer brain activity, providing a indirect measure of neural activity.
  • EEG is commonly used in clinical settings to diagnose epilepsy, as it provides a non-invasive and cost-effective way to measure abnormal electrical activity in the brain.
  • Magnetoencephalography (MEG) has relatively poor spatial resolution due to signal distortion passing through the skull and scalp, making it less accurate for localizing brain activity.
  • EEG records the summation of postsynaptic potentials from thousands of neurons, providing a measure of neural activity at the scalp level.

Test your knowledge of neuroimaging techniques with this quiz. Learn about the principles, information captured, and applications of EEG (Electroencephalography), fMRI (Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging), and MEG (Magnetoencephalography).
