fMRI and EEG unlock mysteries of the brain

Physicists and neuroscientists from The University of Nottingham and University of Birmingham have unlocked one of the mysteries of the human brain, thanks to new research using functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) and electroencephalography (EEG).

The work will enable to map a kind of that up to now could not be studied, allowing a more accurate exploration of how both healthy and diseased brains work.

Functional MRI is commonly used to study how the brain works, by providing spatial maps of where in the brain , such as pictures and sounds, are processed. The fMRI scan does this by detecting indirect changes in the brain’s blood flow in response to changes in electrical signalling during the stimulus.
