Using high-density EEG source imaging to detect subcortical electrophysiological activity

Ch-Michel EEG

256-channel scalp EEG and source imaging

Subcortical neuronal activity is important in mediating communication in large-scale brain networks. While EEG recordings provide appropriate temporal resolution and coverage to study whole brain dynamics, the feasibility to detect subcortical signals is unclear.

In this study published in Nature Communications, the team led by Christoph Michel present direct evidence that scalp EEG can sense subcortical signals.
