Descriptor magnetoencefalografía
Scope note: Medición de campos magnéticos sobre la cabeza generados por las corrientes eléctricas del cerebro. Como en cualquier conductor eléctrico, los campos eléctricos cerebrales se acompañan de campos magnéticos ortogonales. La medida de estos campos aporta información acerca de la localización de la actividad cerebral que es complementaria a la aportada por la ELECTROENCEFALOGRAFÍA. La magnetoencefalografía puede ser utilizada sola o junto a la electroencefalografía, para medir la actividad espontánea o provocada y con fines de investigación o clínicos.

Scope note: The measurement of magnetic fields over the head generated by electric currents in the brain. As in any electrical conductor, electric fields in the brain are accompanied by orthogonal magnetic fields. The measurement of these fields provides information about the localization of brain activity which is complementary to that provided by ELECTROENCEPHALOGRAPHY. Magnetoencephalography may be used alone or together with electroencephalography, for measurement of spontaneous or evoked activity, and for research or clinical purposes.
