Related to magnetoencephalography: functional magnetic resonance imaging
a noninvasive diagnostic technique that directly measures the magnetic fields produced by electrical currents in the brain. A vaultlike device is necessary to ensure that the accuracy of the test is not affected by interference from magnetic fields produced by electrical wires and radio and television transmissions.
The process of recording the brain's magnetic field.
n. Abbr. MEG
A diagnostic imaging technique that detects and records magnetic fields produced by electrical activity in the brain.
