Abstract : Under certain conditions the activity of large neurons within the brain may produce magnetic fields that are recordable at the scalp. Such recording has been termed magnetoencephalography, the magnetic counterpart of electroencephalography. In this paper, we describe some properties of brain magnetic activity and review the recent application of magnetoencephalography to the study of both normal human brain function and cases of cerebral pathology.
