Functional imaging methods
Cognitive processes can be associated with processes in the brain using functional imaging methods. When applying functional imaging methods it is very important to determine the neural correlates of these processes temporally and spatially as accurate as possible.
To achieve this, different approaches are used: Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) facilitates a very precise spatial localisation while other methods, such as magnetoencephalography (MEG) provides excellent temporal resolution of brain activations.
