Noninvasive functional brain imaging with magnetoencephalography (MEG) is regularly used to map the eloquent cortex associated with somatosensory, motor, auditory, visual, and language processing before a surgical resection to determine if the functional areas have been reorganized. Most tasks can also be performed in the pediatric population. To acquire an optimal MEG study for any of these modalities, the patient needs to be well rested and attending to the stimulation.
