The purpose of the study was to examine the feasibility of using magnetoencephalography (MEG), a noninvasive functional brain imaging technique, to assess cerebral laterality for language. The magnetic flux normal to the scalp surface was measured with a whole-head neuromagnetometer while subjects (n = 16) were engaged in a word-matching and a tone-matching task. The effect of hemisphere and task on the number of satisfactory equivalent current dipole (ECD) solutions obtained during the late… CONTINUE READING
