Vannucci said results using fMRI data corroborated several previously known connections found through electrocorticography. One, for example, was the sequential activation during motor tasks of the premotor cortex, then the primary somatosensory cortex, then the primary motor cortex in healthy brains.

Electrocorticography (ECoG) recordings during stimulation were characterized by spike and spike-waves in accordance with the nature of audiogenic seizures.
This 'brain-machine interface' has been implanted successfully into sheep and has yielded chronic nonattenuated signal recordings similar to those recorded from traditional electrocorticography arrays implanted into the brain.
The methods are--EEG, near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS), functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), electrocorticography (ECoG), nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy (NMRS), single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT), and event-related optical signal (EROS).
Background: To study the characters of high-frequency oscillations (HFOs) in the seizure onset zones (SOZ) and the nonseizure onset zones (NSOZ) in the electrocorticography (ECoG) of patients with neocortical epilepsy.
The methodologies that record electromagnetic oscillations in the human brain are electroencephalogram (EEG), magnetoencephalogram (MEG), and electrocorticography (ECoG).
For the BCI system development various equipment is being applied, such as: electrocorticography (ECoG), intra-cortical electrodes (ICE), functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS), functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), magnetoencephalography (MEG), and (the most popular) electroencephalography (EEG) [1], [17], where ECoG and ICE apply invasive recording techniques, which require surgical sensors implantation.
