To date, neuroimaging has provided a wealth of information on how the human brain works in health and disease. With functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), we can obtain spatially precise information about long-lasting brain activations whereas electro- and magnetoencephalography (EEG/MEG) can track transient cortical responses at millisecond resolution. However, none of these methods excel ...
