Simultaneous recording of EEG and functional MRI
Simultaneous EEG-fMRI Study of Audiovisual Sensory Processing
A comparative evaluation of the existing EEG artifact removal methods is provided and new analysis approaches to improve the EEG data are proposed.
Quality of EEG in simultaneous EEG-fMRI for epilepsy
Artifact Reduction in Simultaneous EEG-fMRI: A Systematic Review of Methods and Contemporary Usage
It is suggested that more needs to be done to make new artifact reduction techniques more accessible for the researchers and clinicians using simultaneous EEG-fMRI, as there are few studies published that adequately compare these methods.
EEG-Informed fMRI: A Review of Data Analysis Methods
The methodologies that are currently available to address the challenges at each step of the data analysis pipeline are reviewed, including the so-called EEG-informed fMRI integration strategy, the most commonly used strategy in EEG-fMRI research.
EEG and fMRI Coregistration to Investigate the Cortical Oscillatory Activities During Finger Movement
It is concluded that combined EEG-fMRI may be used to investigate movement-related oscillations of the human brain inside an MRI scanner and the movement- related changes in the EMG or EEG signals are useful to identify the brain activation sources responsible for BOLD-signal changes.
Origin of the Radio Frequency Pulse Artifact in Simultaneous EEG-fMRI Recording: Rectification at the Carbon-Metal Interface
The cause of the RF pulse artifact in EEG systems that use carbon wires is investigated, which is more salient than the gradient artifact after postprocessing for noise removal.
Attenuation of artifacts in EEG signals measured inside an MRI scanner using constrained independent component analysis.
This study proposes a new method of attenuating artifacts from the spontaneous and evoked EEG data acquired inside an MRI scanner using constrained independent component analysis with a priori information about the artifacts as constraints, which performs significantly better than the averaged artifact subtraction (AAS) method.


Identification of EEG Events in the MR Scanner: The Problem of Pulse Artifact and a Method for Its Subtraction
It is concluded that in some subjects, EEG/fMRI studies will be feasible only using PA subtraction, and particular attention has been given to reliable ECG peak detection and ensuring that the average PA waveform is free of other EEG artifacts.
Monitoring the patient's EEG during echo planar MRI.
EEG-triggered echo-planar functional MRI in epilepsy
Results are reported in two patients who showed focally higher signal intensity, reflective of increased local blood flow, in ultrafast functional MRI timed to epileptic discharges recorded while the patients were in the imager and compared with images not associated with discharges.
Visual evoked potential (VEP) measured by simultaneous 64-channel EEG and 3T fMRI.
The first simultaneous measurements of evoked potentials (EPs) and fMRI hemodynamic responses to visual stimulation are presented and it is shown that the designed spatial filter is capable of recovering the ballistocardiogram-contaminated original EEG signal.
Simultaneous functional magnetic resonance imaging and electrophysiological recording
The initial results suggest this can be done safely and without compromise of the fMRI data, and the usefulness of this technique for studies of such things as sleep and epilepsy is promising.
EEG-triggered functional MRI of interictal epileptiform activity in patients with partial seizures.
EEG-triggered fMRI is now a sufficiently developed technique to be more widely used in clinical studies, demonstrating that it can reproducibly localize the brain areas involved in the generation of spikes and spike wave in epilepsy patients with frequent interictal discharges.
Reproducible localization of interictal epileptiform discharges using EEG-triggered fMRI.
Preliminary experiences using fMRI triggered by EEG to localize the site of interictal epileptiform activity using a patient with epilepsy to assess the reliability and reproducibility of the technique.
Recording of electrical brain activity in a magnetic resonance environment: Distorting effects of the static magnetic field
The technical limitations of electroencephalography (EEG) and flashed visually‐evoked potentials (VEP) recordings in the static magnetic field of the MR system were systematically studied. A main
Non-invasive epileptic focus localization using EEG-triggered functional MRI and electromagnetic tomography.
Recording of EEG during fMRI experiments: Patient safety
The minimum value of current‐limiting resistance to be fitted in each EEG electrode lead for a representative worst case loop is calculated, and RF magnetic field intensity and heating in a specific type of current-limiting resistors are measured.
