EEG-assisted retrospective motion correction for fMRI (E-REMCOR) and automated implementation (aE-REMCOR)

by Jerzy Bodurka1,2,3 1Laureate Institute for Brain Research, Tulsa, OK, USA 2Stephenson School of Biomedical of Engineering, 3Center for Biomedical Engineering, The University of Oklahoma, Norman, OK, USA Synopsis Electroencephalography (EEG) concurrently acquired with fMRI provides high temporal resolution information about brain activity as well as subject head movement. We introduced an EEG-assisted retrospective motion…

Simultaneous EEG–fMRI at ultra-high field: Artifact prevention and safety assessment

by João Jorge1,2 1Laboratory for Functional and Metabolic Imaging, EPFL, Lausanne, Switzerland 2Institute for Systems and Robotics, IST, Lisbon, Portugal Introduction Simultaneous EEG-fMRI acquisitions can offer valuable insights for the non-invasive study of human brain function (Britz et al., 2010; Gotman and Pittau, 2011; Scheeringa et al., 2011). Concurrently, the benefits offered by high-field imaging,…
