EEG/MEG and the time course of language processing

About This Video

Electroencephalography (EEG) and magnetoencephalography (MEG) allow the analysis of cortical processing with a very high temporal resolution. The researcher can pinpoint very exactly at which point in time processing is affected by a particular stimulus. The particular changes in response to processing are called the ‘signature’ of a particular event. However, it might not be clear where this effect occurred. Other methods, like fMRI, are used to fill in that gap. In sed mi augue. Nunc congue dignissim venenatis. Vestibulum ornare tincidunt iaculis. Maecenas ac erat ligula, vel tempor neque. Nam et nisl nulla. Phasellus gravida orci in metus pharetra at sodales magna vehicula. Nullam hendrerit diam non sem venenatis in fermentum sapien luctus. Vivamus commodo eros et sem euismod cursus. Quisque vel odio eu orci egestas semper. Integer aliquam dictum bibendum. Vivamus feugiat velit ac mauris convallis blandit eget sit amet felis.
