Abstract

This review introduces readers to fundamentals of electroencephalography (EEG), magnetoencephalography (MEG), and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). EEG and MEG signals are mainly produced by postsynaptic ionic currents of synchronically active pyramidal cortical neurons. These signals reflect the integrative information processing of neurons representing the output of cortical neural modules. EEG and MEG signals have a high temporal resolution (1 s) and quite high spatial resolution (
