EEG and fMRI are the two major methods for imaging human brain function. EEG is known for its excellent temporal resolution (millisecond) but poor spatial resolution (centimeter) whereas fMRI is known for its good spatial resolution (millimeter) but poor temporal resolution (second). Simultaneous EEG-fMRI, in which EEG is recorded together with fMRI inside the MRI scanner, is an emerging technique that promises to combine the strengths of the two methods and overcome their shortcomings. 

In this video recorded at the 2018 IEEE Workshop on Advanced NeuroTechnologies, Mingzhou Ding of the University of Florida presents studies that illustrate the neuroscience applications of the simultaneous EEG-fMRI technique.
