Editorial Reviews

Review


"In combination with EEG and MR-based cortical reconstruction, MEG has considerably improved in the past ten years to become very close to the brain imager's long-awaited ideal-a non-invasive method capable of reconstructing human brain activity in both time and space. In this impressive volume, suitable for both beginners as well as advanced users, MEG methodology is reviewed in great depth. Any neuroscientist who wishes to use this underexploited brain-imaging method, or simply to better understand the power and limitations of published MEG papers, should study this book-clearly a landmark in the field."
--Stanislas Dehaene, Member, French Academy of Sciences, Professor, Collège de France, Directeur, INSERM


"Users of the increasingly popular technique of magnetoencephalography will welcome this excellent introductory guide to non-invasive imaging of the dynamics of the brain. The clear, tutorial style, plugs a major gap in the literature of MEG by providing a comprehensive overview of theory, data acquisition and analysis using state-of-the-art techniques. Clinicians and scientists will both find this is a useful reference text as well as of value in training programmes."
--Gary Green, Director, York Neuroimaging Centre, UK


"An essential reference for MEG researchers and a crucial resource for cognitive neuroscientists and clinicians contemplating MEG experiments or evaluating the MEG literature. Expert, comprehensive and deep, this volume fills a long-recognized void. The book clearly and convincingly answers the question, 'why MEG?,' as well as providing the best 'how-to-MEG' manual currently available."
--Alec Marantz, Professor of Linguistics and Psychology, New York University


"The capability of MEG to combine the temporal resolution of electrophysiology with reasonable spatial localization power is extremely useful - but not sufficiently appreciated. The ambitious goal of this first-rate collection of how-to articles on MEG experimentation is to provide readers with the necessary background and expertise to understand the underpinnings of MEG and execute a state-of-the-art study. The aim is admirably met; one wishes this book had existed for the last ten years! The careful technical descriptions combined with extensive documentation and rich graphical illustrations provide a compelling guide to implementing MEG research, with a particular emphasis on source localization. The contributors are the recognized experts in this area. Undoubtedly, the volume will facilitate the increased use of the method in basic and clinical settings and be the definitive guide to using MEG across research areas."
--David Poeppel, Professor of Psychology and Neural Science, NYU


"An outstanding introduction to the science of magnetoencephalography (MEG), written by some of the world's experts in the field. It covers a wide range of topics from sensory and motor functions to language and cognitive science, and includes clinical topics as well. Different analysis techniques are carefully discussed. The book provides a competent overview of this expanding field of neuroimaging, which is the best by far in terms of temporal resolution. Some chapters also describe approaches combining MEG with other imaging techniques, such as MRI, PET or EEG, which may be the future. Overall, the book is a great introduction for the novice and exciting to read for the expert as well."
--Josef P. Rauschecker, Professor of Physiology and Biophysics, Neurology and Psychology
Georgetown University Medical Center

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book provides a very accessible, yet thorough, introduction to the physics, experimental design, and data analysis aspects of magnetoencephalography. I hope that this book with spark increased interest in this under-appreciated neuroimaging method.

Format: Hardcover
If you are not family with MEG technique, you should read this book. Very clear illustration with fair amount of equation which can satisfy those from math department. I borrowed it from library. I love it. I wish it could be a little bit cheaper for a graduate student to afford. I will watch for it. I will definitely recommend this book to my colleagues who are interested in MEG.
