Figure 2: Artifact removal. (a) Shown are data from one channel before (black) and after (red) ICA-based correction for eye-blink artifacts identified by EOG activity (bottom trace). The inset illustrates the 2-dimensional artifact space used for projection (time-courses and spatial topographies). The first dimension is dominant. Note the artifact has similar features as epileptic discharges in that it involves several MEG channels, has sharp peaks, and stands out from ongoing background activity (see also [55]). (b) Equivalent current dipole modeling of an evoked somatosensory response in a child before (left) and after (right) SSS-based movement correction. After correction, the ECD assumes a physiologically plausible location (courtesy of Elekta Neuromag OY, Helsinki). (c) Brain activity can be localized accurately despite strong artifacts caused by DBS electrodes (right). Before beamforming-based correction, strong, nonphysiological interferences outside the brain are observed (left, adapted from [56]).
