Scenarios of most typical MEG/EEG sessions

A successful MEG or EEG study is a combination of quality instrumentation, careful practical paradigm design, and well-understood preprocessing and analysis methods integrated in efficient software tools. We shall review these latter aspects in this section.

(1) Paradigm design

The time dimension accessible to MEG/EEG offers some considerable variety in the design of experimental paradigms for testing virtually any basic neuroscience hypothesis.

(2) Subject preparation

A few important points to optimize the chances to obtain good-quality MEG/EEG data.

(3) Data acquisition

Runs, trials, epochs, events, etc.: all that makes a dynamic experimental session.
