New publication by Guido Barchiesi and colleagues, where MEG is used as a whole head myographic recorder: https://doi.org/10.1111/psyp.13507 Results confirm the utility of head magnetomyography (hMMG) as a whole head electromyographic recorder to quantify muscular activation patterns including muscular regions that are typically not recorded with EMG. This key advantage beyond conventional EMG has substantial […]

Article by Rassi et al. describes how to set up an experiment that allows detecting pre-stimulus source-level influences on object perception using magnetoencephalography (MEG). It covers stimulus material, experimental design, MEG recording, and data analysis: http://dx.doi.org/10.3791/60120 Detecting Pre-Stimulus Source-Level Effects on Object Perception with Magnetoencephalography
