Empirical evaluation of fused EEG-MEG source reconstruction. Application to auditory mismatch generators
The present methodology confirms with real data the theoretical interest of simultaneous EEG/MEG recordings and fused inversion to highly inform (spatially and temporally) source modeling and evaluates empirically the gain of fused EEG-MEG source reconstruction, compared to unimodal (EEG or MEG) one.
MEG–EEG Information Fusion and Electromagnetic Source Imaging: From Theory to Clinical Application in Epilepsy
MEEG proved more robust than EEG and MEG for single IED localization in low signal-to-noise ratio conditions and showed that only few EEG electrodes are required to bring additional relevant information to MEG during MEM fusion.
Towards an Objective Evaluation of EEG/MEG Source Estimation Methods: The Linear Tool Kit
A tutorial-style introduction to resolution analysis of linear source estimation methods, focusing on linear methods, and shows that adding EEG to MEG improves spatial resolution, and that different methods offer different compromises among different resolution criteria.

A recently proposed sparse source imaging technique, i.e., the variation-based sparse cortical current density (VB-SCCD) algorithm, is used to compare the use of EEG or MEG data in reconstructing extended cortical sources and indicates that EEG and MEG have similar reconstruction performance as indicated by a metric, the area under the receiver operating characteristic curve (AUC).
A new multimodal cortical source imaging algorithm for integrating simultaneously recorded EEG and MEG
A new cortical source imaging algorithm is proposed, which takes into account the different sensitivity characteristics of the two modalities with respect to cortical source orientations, and substantially enhances localization accuracy over almost the entire cortical surface compared to that of the conventional integration algorithm.
A Parametric Empirical Bayesian Framework for the EEG/MEG Inverse Problem: Generative Models for Multi-Subject and Multi-Modal Integration
The benefits of multi-modal, multi-subject integration in terms of the model evidence and the reproducibility (over subjects) of cortical responses to faces are shown.


Linear inverse source estimate of combined EEG and MEG data related to voluntary movements
The linear inverse source estimate of combined MEG and EEG data improves the estimate of movement‐related cortical activity and suggested a contralaterally preponderant bilateral activation of primary sensorimotor cortex from the preparation to the execution of the movement.
Monte Carlo simulation studies of EEG and MEG localization accuracy
Results show that surprisingly, EEG localization is more accurate than MEG localization for the same number of sensors averaged over many source locations and orientations; as expected, combining EEG with MEG produces the best accuracy for the the same total number of sensor locations.
Multimodal integration of EEG and MEG data: A simulation study with variable signal‐to‐noise ratio and number of sensors
The results of the simulations suggest that the use of simultaneous 29 EEG sensors during the MEG measurements carried out with full sensor arrangements returned an accuracy of the cortical source estimate statistically similar to that obtained by combining 64 EEG and 153 MEG sensors.
Simultaneous MEG and EEG source analysis.
It is shown that conductivity estimation gives a substantial increase in precision, even if the conductivities are not identified appropriately, and an illustrative analysis of empirical data supports these findings.
A method for combining MEG and EEG to determine the sources.
A three-step method is presented which combines an MEG and EEG map over the head to solve the inverse problem (to determine the sources). This method uses the feature that the MEG does not see a
Magnetoencephalography-theory, instrumentation, and applications to noninvasive studies of the working human brain
The mathematical theory of the method is explained in detail, followed by a thorough description of MEG instrumentation, data analysis, and practical construction of multi-SQUID devices.

Distributed current estimates using cortical orientation constraints
Simulations in auditory and somatosensory areas with current dipoles and 10‐ or 20‐mm diameter cortical patches as test sources showed that applying the LOC can increase localization accuracy.
