Cortical and subcortical correlates of electroencephalographic alpha rhythm modulation.
The inverse relationship between EEG alpha amplitude and BOLD signals in primary and secondary visual areas suggests that widespread thalamocortical synchronization is associated with decreased brain metabolism.
Electrophysiological signatures of resting state networks in the human brain
This work has identified six widely distributed resting state networks and supports for the first time in humans the coalescence of several brain rhythms within large-scale brain networks as suggested by biophysical studies.
Simultaneous EEG and fMRI in the macaque monkey at 4.7 Tesla.
Regression of EEG correlates from simultaneous fMRI signals in epilepsy
Estimating the EEG correlates -EEG Fingerprint of BOLD-fMRI fluctuations measured at specific distributed epileptic networks previously identified on the fMRI, based on simultaneous EEG-f MRI recordings from a group of five epilepsy patients revealed that SR and Ridge of LC model with no-predefined delay performed best at predicting the BOLD signal of epilept networks.
Transfer Function between EEG and BOLD Signals of Epileptic Activity
A new methodology for the integration of simultaneous EEG-fMRI data in epilepsy is proposed, which incorporates a transfer function from the EEG to the BOLD signal and frequency-weighted EEG metrics yielded superior results than those weighted solely on the EEG power.


A Method for Removing Imaging Artifact from Continuous EEG Recorded during Functional MRI
It is demonstrated that simultaneous EEG/ fMRI studies are for the first time possible, extending the scope of EEG/fMRI studies considerably.
Electroencephalography during functional echo‐planar imaging: Detection of epileptic spikes using post‐processing methods
After elimination of interfering frequencies by filters in the time domain or by Fourier transform, reliable spike detection in the EEG recorded during MR data acquisition became feasible, without loss of EEG quality.
Neurophysiological investigation of the basis of the fMRI signal
These findings suggest that the BOLD contrast mechanism reflects the input and intracortical processing of a given area rather than its spiking output, and that LFPs yield a better estimate of BOLD responses than the multi-unit responses.
Simultaneous EEG and fMRI of the alpha rhythm
It is found that increased alpha power was correlated with decreased MRI signal in multiple regions of occipital, superior temporal, inferior frontal, and cingulate cortex, and with increased signal in the thalamus and insula and may have important implications for interpretation of resting baseline in fMRI studies.
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.
Event-Related fMRI with Simultaneous and Continuous EEG: Description of the Method and Initial Case Report
A new technique for the simultaneous and continuous acquisition of functional MRI data and EEG recording on a patient with epilepsy and localization of the BOLD activation associated with the EEG events was consistent with previous findings and EEG source modeling.
Relations between PET-derived measures of thalamic glucose metabolism and EEG alpha power.
Electroencephalogram (EEG) alpha power has been demonstrated to be inversely related to mental activity and has subsequently been used as an indirect measure of brain activation. The thalamus has
On the Relationship of Synaptic Activity to Macroscopic Measurements: Does Co-Registration of EEG with fMRI Make Sense?
A two-scale theoretical description outlines relationships between brain current sources and the resulting extracranial electric field, recorded as EEG, with emphasis on the fundamental non-uniqueness of inverse solutions.
