The purpose of this study was to develop a method for obtaining simultaneous electrophysiological and functional magnetic resonance imaging data. Using phantom experiments and tests on several of the investigators, a method for obtaining simultaneous electrophysiological and fMRI data was developed and then tested in three volunteers including two task activation experiments. It was then applied in a sleep experiment (n = 12). Current limiting resistance and low‐pass filtering were added to the… 
Real-time artifact filtering in continuous VEPs/fMRI recording
Recording of the event‐related potentials during functional MRI at 3.0 Tesla field strength
The feasibility of recording event‐related potentials (ERP) during functional MRI (fMRI) scanning was studied using an alternating checkerboard stimulus in a blocked presentation and artifacts overlaid on the electrophysiological recordings were corrected by post hoc filtering methods presented here.

By merging these two recording methods, it is likely that the authors will gain a more detailed understanding of not only the areas involved in certain physiologic events, e.g. focal epilepsy or cognitive processing, but also on the sequencing of the activation of the various participating regions.
Acquiring simultaneous EEG and functional MRI
EEG recording during fMRI experiments: Image quality
It was concluded that concurrent EEG and fMRI could be performed without compromising the image quality significantly if suitable equipment is used and the image noise originating from the EEG recording equipment was identified as coherent noise and could be eliminated by appropriate shielding of the EEG equipment.
Simultaneous Electromyography and Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging of Skeletal Muscle
The proposed method combines both techniques in simultaneous data acquisition to provide greater muscle physiological information during exercise, and both techniques are non-invasive making repeated measurements feasible.
Physical modeling of pulse artefact sources in simultaneous EEG/fMRI
Of these two sources, head rotation was shown to be the most likely source of the PA with simulated magnitudes being generated at 3 T, similar to the in vivo PA magnitudes, for an angular velocity of just 0.5°/s.


Functional mapping of activated human primary cortex with a clinical MR imaging system.
This method of relating brain structure to function uses equipment that is widely available, which has considerable implications for the investigation of many neurologic and neurosurgical diseases and for the understanding of brain function and dysfunction.
Dynamic magnetic resonance imaging of human brain activity during primary sensory stimulation.
Neuronal activity causes local changes in cerebral blood flow, blood volume, and blood oxygenation. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) techniques sensitive to changes in cerebral blood flow and blood

Magnetic localization of neuronal activity in the human brain.
Adaptation of activity in human auditory cortex was shown to reveal long-term features with a paradigm that compared response amplitudes for three tones randomly presented, showing the locations of neuronal sources for different tone frequencies could be obtained without moving the recording instrument.
Processing strategies for time‐course data sets in functional mri of the human brain
The most effective method for image processing involves thresholding by shape as characterized by the correlation coefficient of the data with respect to a reference waveform followed by formation of a cross‐correlation image.
Qualitative mapping of cerebral blood flow and functional localization with echo-planar MR imaging and signal targeting with alternating radio frequency.
The EPISTAR technique is a rapid, noninvasive means for creating qualitative maps of cerebral blood flow and changes in the motor strip, primary visual cortex, and the motor area for eye movements were well localized to the cortical gray matter ribbon.

Functional magnetic resonance imaging of complex human movements
Six right-handed healthy subjects were scanned while they performed self-paced simple and complex finger movements with the right and left hands, and preliminary results are consistent with hierarchical models of voluntary motor control.
