This chapter summarizes some relative advantages and disadvantages of MEG and EEG, most of which have been previously elaborated. MEG and EEG are the two sides of the same coin and provide complementary information about the human brain’s neurodynamics. The combined use of MEG or EEG together and with other noninvasive methods used to study human brain function is advocated to be important for future research in systems and cognitive/social neuroscience. This chapter also examines combined use and interpretation of MEG/EEG with MRI/fMRI, and performing EEG recordings during non-invasive brain stimulation.
