We present the 3-D EEG source images reconstructed by using the minimum norm least square (MNLS) method in combination with the functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) statistical parametric mapping. For a group of five normal subjects, electroencephalogram (EEG) and fMRI signals responding to the full-view checkerboard pattern-reversal visual stimulation were recorded simultaneously and separately. The electrical activities in V1/V2 and V5 were successfully imaged in the N75-P100-N145 and P100-N145 components, respectively. The present results demonstrate the merits of high-resolution spatiotemporal functional neuroimaging by integrating the simultaneously recorded fMRI and EEG data.
