Abstract : A workshop on the prospects of the electroencephalogram (EEG) and the magnetoencephalogram (MEG) for elucidating human brain function was held at Virginia Beach, Virginia from May17-22 1992. The purpose of the workshop was to discuss the EEG and the MEG in relation to other rapidly advancing imaging modalities such as PET, SPECT, and functional MRI (MRI), and in terms of the recognized research, medical, and personnel evaluation needs for advanced brain imaging. Medical areas where these and other advanced technologies will undoubtedly be utilized include the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the brain such as epilepsy, Alzheimer's and schizophrenia; the monitoring and facilitation of recovery of function from head trauma and stroke, and the quantitative assessment of the effect on the brain of toxins and other bioenvironmental hazards. Non-medical applications of these techniques include a furthering of our understanding of the factors that are limiting the development and full utilization of human intelligence, particularly in recognition of increasing demands that are being placed on the mental capacities of people who live and work in our modern, post-industrial society
